The association of evaporites and carbonates in arid environments can result in reservoir
and seal facies in close proximity, as in the Middle East. Evaporites and carbonates
deposited in extensive shallow lagoons during the late Jurassic are exposed along the
Dorset coast in southern England, where a shallowing-up succession can be investigated
from basin-centre evaporites through ooid shoals, algal tidal flats and sabkhas to
palaeosols. This region is distinguished by the exceptional preservation of fossil forest
environments. The preservation of the trees allows us to investigate the nature of the
hinterland environment and climatic conditions governing the carbonate—evaporite
