​The Lithostratigraphy of Iran by Dr. Mansour Ghorbani, a faculty member of the Faculty of Earth Sciences, was published by Springer Publishing. The book was sent to Springer in 2016 and finalized following several stages of revision, update and review in 2018. It was finally published at the beginning of 2019 by Springer Publishing. In general, the book discusses the lithostratigraphy of various units from Proterozoic to the present day. The main purpose of the book is to provide a general framework for Iranian sedimentary formations and units. The overall geology of various sedimentary basins is described in terms of its associated time together with stratigraphic units. The data related to various fossil types have been introduced for each formation, and the age of some formations has been changed based on valid data. Available stratigraphic data is finally summarized in tables, and most of the available resources are presented. Finally, the book provides temporal and spatial distribution of different formations together with geographic locations, sample sections, lithological composition of each formation, as well as general spatial and temporal adaptation for all the developed sedimentary basins. It should be noted that many sources (over 800) have been used in the elaboration of this book. In addition, the author has observed all the sample and reference sections of all formations closely and adapted them to the available information.

The Faculty of Erath Sciences is very proud of the publication of this valuable work and congratulates Dr. Mansour Ghorbani, wishing him more success for the future.
