Welcome
 Dear colleagues,

First and foremost, we would like to express our heartfelt appreciation to all authors of the Arabian Journal of Geosciences (AJGS) for their trust in us and to our reviewers and editors for their continued support . It was only with their co-operation, enthusiasm, and spirit that we have been able make the AJGS a great success.

In continuation of the 1st Conference of the Arabian Journal of Geosciences (CAJG) which was successfully organized in 2018 on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the AJGS, it is a pleasure and an honor to invite you to attend the 2nd CAJG , which will be held on 25–28 November 2019 on the waterfront of the Port El Kantaoui  in Sousse, Tunisia.

The conference covers a wide range of topics that reflect the AJGS’s multiple scientific interests. It is an opportunity to invite and thank the authors, reviewers and editors who have supported and been associated with the AJGS from the beginning. Top researchers from all fields of geosciences will present their original work during these four days. To this end, a number of prominent speakers have agreed to give keynote presentations. Moreover, we are planning workshops, a social program and field trips, where participants can take a little time out to explore the wonders of the geological sites of Tunisia.

From basin-scale to the crustal and lithospheric architecture of the Maghrebides and their Atlasic-Saharan foreland: The need for coupled deep seismic soundings and tomography

28 November 2019 
09:00–18:00
 

Since the mid 80s, national and international deep seismic reflection profiles have provided unique surveillance of the Moho and crustal architecture beneath sedimentary basins, tectonic wedges and adjacent forelands, mostly in North America and Europe. More recently, ongoing 3D mantle and crustal tomography programs based on 3D passive seismic recordings have also documented lateral seismic anisotropies and vertical seismic reversals in tectonic wedges and adjacent forelands. They provide accurate velocity models which can also be used for depth conversion and the processing of more conventional reflection profiles. Mantle tomography has been successful in documenting the vertical and lateral extent of lithospheric slabs and crustal delamination. The lack of such deep surveillance of North African tectonic wedges and adjacent forelands precludes any prospection of deep plays. For instance, profiles of deep seismic soundings would be of immense benefit to better monitor the geodynamic and thermal evolution of North African sedimentary basins, to identify new exploration objectives, and to better document the deep architecture of active fault systems. Therefore, the aim of this roundtable is to stimulate interest by both national and international research teams, agencies and companies in these topics, and to investigate the possibility of launching ambitious North African crustal imagery projects.


This workshop is supported by The International Lithosphere Program (ILP).

How to prepare a successful scientific paper
28 November 2019 

11:00–12:30 

Publication must be seen as an important, if not the most important, part of the research process. However, writing research papers for academic journals is not easy and is also very competitive. After producing data and generating ideas from your research, how do you write a clear and concise paper that attracts the attention of journal editors? How should you prepare a cover letter? How should you respond to reviewer reports? A Senior Publishing Editor from Springer Nature in Heidelberg, Germany shares his advice during three hours on how to effectively write and structure your paper, prepare a cover page and respond to reviewers’ comments.

Social Program

Arabian Musicology

To celebrate the closure of the 2nd Conference of the Arabian Journal of Geosciences on Wednesday evening, November 27th, we are delighted to announce that we have lined up a particularly brilliant and varied evening of Arabian music for you, performed by gifted local musicians… Wishing you lots of fun!
 

Guided Tours

We are also planning a half-day guided tour of old city Sousse and a visit to the Mediterranean village Sidi Bou Said on Thursday, November 28th after lunch at 2 pm.

The two hour tour of old city Sousse includes many of the major sites of the medina (old town) of Sousse, one of the finest examples of Arab architecture in Tunisia, preserved almost completely unchanged throughout the centuries.

The half day visit to the Mediterranean village Sidi Bou Said will continue to amaze you throughout your entire trip. The entire town is located on top of a steep cliff north of Tunis, which overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. The view from Sidi Bou Said is absolutely phenomenal. The entire village is simply beautiful, with flowers draped from almost every wall and doorway, and beautiful flowing vines hanging throughout the entire area.

Useful information

Please take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance before travelling. ATMs are widely available in Tunisia though they don’t always work.

Almost all ATMs will accept Visa cards, and many will also accept Maestro cards for cash withdrawals.

Credit and debit cards are accepted in some but not all of the larger shops, restaurants and hotels. 1 Tunisian Dinar = 1/3 EUR The temperature drops into the realms of warm to mild in Tunisia’s Mediterranean resorts during November.

With an average maximum temperature of 20°C, Tunisia in November is heading for its cool, wet, winter season, but is still very sunny.

November is a very pleasant time to travel to Tunisia. November is also a good month for excursions into the southern desert regions of Tunisia, which remain dry, but offer bearable daytime temperatures, although nights are exceedingly cold.

Discover Port El Kantaoui, Sousse - Tunisia

Port El Kantaoui has one of the best known marinas in the Mediterranean.

A charming pleasure port, with its typical Moorish architecture and hustle and bustle along its quays, constitutes an attractive touristic pole where good living and relaxation are the predominating features.

It is located in the centre of the coastal touristic area of Sousse with its numerous hotel and structures dedicated to entertainment and leisure activities of the holidaymakers. At a distance of 12 km from this marina is the town of Sousse, a famous seaside resort of the Tunisian Sahel. It was founded during the Phoenician era and was known as “Hadrumetum”. It then became an important town of the Roman province and then of the Aghlabid dynasty. This port town, today known as the « Pearl of the Sahel » is inviting you to visit its museums and various historical sites. Its medina and its typical alleys which display its ancestral architecture, colours and local handicrafts, have been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The whole Sahel region, between the littoral and inland, yields a large portion of Tunisian heritage treasures throughout its history, with remarkable archeological sites such as Lamta or El Djem and its famous coliseum which hosts an international festival of classical music in summer.
