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
