The palynomorph assemblages of the Jurassic penetrated by three wells in the northern part of the Eastern Desert consist of 36 species belonging to 25 genera of pollen and spores and 27 species attributed to 17 genera of dinoflagellate cysts. Three successive microfloral assemblages are recognized. The Lower to Middle Jurassic (Bajocian) has been deposited in a very shallow and quiet marine environment while the Middle Jurassic (Bathoman-Callovian) is represented by alternating brackish and very shallow-marine conditions. The Upper Jurassic is characterized by a more open-marine and deeper environment.
