On the occasion of the journal celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2018, the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the AJGS - in collaboration with Springer - organized the 1st Conference of the Arabian Journal of Geosciences (1st CAJG).
The conference was an occasion to endorse the journal’s long-held reputation for attracting many important studies from the Middle East, Euro-Mediterranean, Africa, Asia and other parts of the world.
The dynamic four-day conference in a stimulating environment provided attendees with opportunities to share their latest unpublished findings and learn the newest studies.

Conference themes 

* Climate, paleoclimate and paleoenvironmental changes
* Geo-informatics, remote sensing, geodesy
* Geoenvironmental engineering, geomechanics and geotechnics, geohazards
* Geography, geoecology, geoarcheology, geotourism
* Geophysics, seismology
* Hydrology, hydrogeology, hydrochemistry
* Mineralogy, geochemistry, petrology and volcanology
* Petroleum engineering and petroleum geology/geochemistry
* Sedimentology, stratigraphy, paleontology, geomorphology, pedology
* Structural geology, geodynamics, marine geology

Conference Organizers 

- Abdullah Al-Amri, King Saud University, Saudi Arabia
- Nabil Khélifi, Springer
- François Roure, IFP – Energies Nouvelles, France
- Walter D. Mooney, United States Geological Survey Western Region, USA

A set of high-quality topical collections (special issues) on cross-cutting themes of Earth Sciences are being published in the Arabian Journal of Geosciences.
Authors of some excellent papers were also invited to submit an extended version in the following journals:
International Journal of Earth Sciences
Euro-Mediterranean Journal for Environmental Integration
Earth Systems and Environment .


The scientific committee will provide awards for the best paper from each conference track. The award consists of a Springer Award for Outstanding Paper and a gift voucher for the amount of 300 euros which can be used to purchase Springer books. All winners will be presented with a commemorative certificate and will be acknowledged during the awards luncheon.

    Aims and Scope


    The Arabian Journal of Geosciences is the official journal of the Saudi Society for Geosciences and publishes peer-reviewed original and review articles on the entire range of Earth Science themes, focused on, but not limited to, those that have regional significance to the Middle East and the Euro-Mediterranean Zone. Key topics therefore include; geology, hydrogeology, earth system science, petroleum sciences, geophysics, seismology and crustal structures, tectonics, sedimentology, palaeontology, metamorphic and igneous petrology, natural hazards, environmental sciences and sustainable development, geoarchaeology, geomorphology, paleo-environment studies, oceanography, atmospheric sciences, GIS and remote sensing, geodesy, mineralogy, volcanology, geochemistry and metallogenesis.

    NEW: The Arabian Journal of Geosciences will start publishing accepted articles as a continuous volume and issue throughout the year starting in 2016. This will ensure that articles are made available as soon as they are ready to avoid unnecessary delays in getting content publically available.
