Lebanon publications

Among my papers on Lebanon are an introduction to the geology of Lebanon, The Geology of Lebanon, which is still the best short summary of what is a very poorly known area. This is currently only available on the web. Similarly, my paper on the Lithostratigraphy of Lebanon, is posted here in pdf format as the original seems impossible to get hold of otherwise.

Other publications on Lebanon are listed on the main geology page but inserted here  as well for completeness.
