MIDDLE EAST STRATIGRAPHY

Publications

Preliminary remark: It is always easier for me to publish papers dealing with micropaleontology because there are usually no confidentiality issues attached to such topics.

Below, there are few O&G-related papers however they represents merely the tip of the iceberg (i.e., they do not reflect my REAL expertise on the fields of carbonate reservoirs, carbonate sedimentology, stratigraphy, ...

You have published a number of papers that I had no idea existed. So you are more prolific of very detailed and well-presented information than that which I have admired over the years.

I Read your Preliminary Version on 'Holostratigraphy of the Kahmah Series in Oman, Qatar and the UAE' with great interest. It is the most up-to-date and comprehensive account I have seen. Congratulations!
