CYBAES Publications

The second issue of the CYBAES Newsletter has been posted in March 2007. In this issue, you can read about the status of CYBAES, about the first annual edition of the Archive, a discussion of copyright as it relates to this project, and what to look forward to in the months to come.

Also, March 2007 saw the release of the first annual citation collection, titled "The Cyprus Bibliographic Archive of the Earth Sciences 2006." It includes the 1458 citations of the Archive up to and including 2006, accompanied by a full author index.

Both of these publications are available from this web-site in pdf format. Please visit the publications page to download them.

The Messinian Salinity Crisis Revisited - A special issue of the journal Sedimentary Geology on this topic includes geologically focused papers from an international colloquium held in Corsica in July 2004. According to the guest editors, Jean Marie Rouchy, Jean-Pierre Suc, Jean Ferrandini and Michelle Ferrandini, "...The aim of the colloquium was to present an update of the recent and most significant advances on the question of the Messinian Salinity Crisis, to debate of the recent genetic models and to discuss the perspectives for forthcoming investigations, but also to promote dialogue between teams of different countries and stimulate cooperation between them..." (Rouchy et al. 2006, below). According to the guest editors, an up and coming special issue of the journal Geobios will host additional papers from the colloquium of palaeobiological focus, so stay tuned to see them listed here! For now, six papers from this issue (Sedimentary Geology, Volumes 188-189) have been selected for inclusion into CYBAES:

Notable collections from 2005

Geological Framework of the Levant - That is the title of a monumental, two-volume work totaling more than 1300 pages, published by Historical Publications-Hall, Jerusalem, Israel, in April of last year. John K. Hall of the Geological Survey of Israel kindly sent us copies of this work. He and Valery A. Krasheninnikov lead two teams of editors, who navigate us through the chapters of this work and accompanying maps and charts. A DVD with high- and and low-resolution pdf files, plus some of the digital materials, is available upon request at no cost from John K. Hall at jkh1@012.net.il. CYBAES is pleased to provide to you, with John K. Hall's generous permission, low-resolution versions of these two volumes and the eleven (11) plates that accompany them in pdf format (down-load times may vary). You may see the citations and download the files on the manuscript downloads page.
