520    The Qattara Depression is part of the Northwestern Desert 
       in Egypt and is home to the second lowest point in Africa 
       at -133 meters below sea level. Therefore, before any 
       projects can be carried out in this area, we must first 
       understand the geology of the land. The present study 
       deals with the high-resolution sequence stratigraphic 
       analysis of the Lower Miocene Moghra Formation outcrops in
       the Qattara Depression Region. The literature on the 
       sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy of the Moghra 
       Formation has been sparse to date, despite some excellent 
       work over the years by academic and petroleum workers. 
       Moreover, the area studied is within what was once a front
       -line of World War II, where mine fields and war relics 
       are scattered and cover wide reaches. This has resulted in
       limited geologic mapping in the past. Thus, great 
       attention is paid in this study to establishing a robust 
       sedimentology and high-resolution sequence stratigraphic 
       framework for the Lower Miocene Moghra Formation. Included
       are works based on outcrops and, most importantly, new 
       sedimentological and chronostratigraphic information not 
       previously available.
