About this book

This edited volume is based on the best papers accepted for presentation during the 1st Springer Conference of the Arabian Journal of Geosciences (CAJG-1), Tunisia 2018. This special volume  is of interest to all researchers practicing geosphysicists/seismologists, students of PG and UG in the fields of multifaceted Geoscience.  Major applications with relevant illustrations presented  in the volume are from Middle East. And therefore, this book no doubt would  serve as a reference guide to all geoscientists and students  in the broad  field of Earth Science. This volume covers  significant applications   of  gravity and magnetic methods, electrical and electromagnetic methods, refraction and reflection seismic methods besides a large number of  study on earthquakes, tectonics and geological settings etc. The salient  features  of this volume are the interpretation  and modeling of   geophysical data  of  different nature.    Main topics include: 1. Applications of gravity and magnetic methods.2. Electrical and Electromagnetic methods in mineral and groundwater exploration.3. Case studies on  refraction and reflection seismic methods.4. Integrated geoscience applications in the exploration of  subsurface resources.5. Hydrocarbon and petrophysical studies6. Earthquakes and seismic hazard assessment.7. Tectonics

Dr. Al-Garni holds a B.Sc. (1993) in Geophysics from King Abdulaziz University (KAU, Saudi Arabia), a M.Sc. (1996) in Geophysics from Colorado School of Mines (Colorado, USA), and a Ph.D. (2001) in Geophysics from Texas A & M University (TAMU, College Station, USA). In 1993, he worked as a Geophysicist at the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, United States Geological Survey in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), and as a Demonstrator of Geophysics at KAU, where he became in 2002 an Assistant Professor of Geophysics. He has been promoted to an Associate Professor in 2006 and to a full Professor of Geophysics in 2010.

His research interests cover controlled-source electromagnetic induction, electrical methods, gravity and magnetic methods, near-surface applied Geophysics, forward and inverse modeling, environmental and engineering Geophysics, environmental site characterization, ground penetrating radar, Hydrogeophysics, and mining Geophysics: theory, data processing and interpretation. Dr. Al-Garni has reviewed a lot of academic works and has been in many committees including those of M.Sc. and Ph.D. examinations. His remarkable efforts in the establishment and development of various projects were reflected in valuable academic and professional successes and achievements. He has conducted more than 15 research projects, the most recent of which involved EM, DC resistivity, SP, IP, and magnetic methods for mineral exploration in the Arabian Shield. He has published more than 50 research articles in international indexed and refereed journals. He has been listed in the "Marquis Who's who in the World" as one of the worlds foremost achievers in the field of Geophysics in the 28th Edition (2011). In 2015 Dr. Al-Garni joined the AJGS as an Associate Editor responsible for evaluating submission in the fields of Theoretical and Applied Exploration Geophysics.
Dr. Eshagh received his B.Sc. in Surveying Engineering 1999 from Islamic Azad University, South of Teheran branch, M.Sc. in Geodesy 2002 from KNToosi University of Technology, and PhD in Geodesy 2009 from Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Sweden. In October 2010 he was appointed as Docent/Associate Professor of Physical Geodesy / Space Geodesy at KTH and since September 2013 as professor of Geodesy at University West, in Sweden. He has been teacher of a variety of courses in Surveying Engineering at different levels of education from high school to PhD programmes since 1999. His research interests are mainly in the fields of Physical Geodesy specially geoid and gravity field determination, satellite gravimetry and gradiometry, adjustment theory, satellite orbit determination, geodetic network optimisation and design, theories of isostasy, Moho and density contrast determination, sub-lithospheric stress modelling using gravimetric data. He has published and co-authored about 150 original articles, monographs, text-books, edited books, special issues, and conference abstracts. Dr. Eshagh is the founder and senior managing editor of Journal of Geodetic Science. Also, he is cooperating as editor of Journal Numerical Methods in Civil Engineering, Geodynamics Research International Bulletin, Journal of Applied Engineering Sciences, and Journal of Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering.

Dr. Meghraoui completed his Ph.D. (1988) at the University of Paris XI-Orsay (France) on the Seismotectonics and Paleoseismology of the Tell Atlas in Algeria. He is a senior scientist at the “Institut de Physique du Globe” at the University of Strasbourg (France). His working group has achieved major strides, releasing pioneering studies on the identification of active faults in intraplate Europe and interplate major continental active faults. They have developed paleoseismic studies in regions with fast active deformation and large earthquakes, and in regions with low-level seismicity in Europe. In particular, and for nearly 20 years now, the combination of micro-topography, shallow geophysics and trenching in active faulting studies has led to the group producing numerous peer-reviewed publications and internationally recognized research papers (ca. 90 articles in ISI-JCR journals, 2500 citations). These contributions focus on the development of paleoseismic and archeoseismic studies and earthquake geology in different tectonic domains (North African Atlas, North and East Anatolian fault, and Dead Sea fault), and on the comparison between regions with slow active deformation and regions with fast seismic slip release. Furthermore, their research focuses on the development of a conceptual framework to deepen our understanding of long-term faulting behavior in earthquake-prone regions, and on studies of faults in regions with the potential for large or moderate earthquakes and related physical characteristics. Dr. Meghraoui has contributed to many international scientific projects, supervised 12 Ph.D. theses and coordinated several European and international (UNESCO) projects. He has served as an editorial board member for the Annals of Geophysics and Natural Hazards journals. He is currently an Associate Editor of the Euro-Mediterranean Journal for Environmental Integration (Springer). In 2016 Dr. Meghraoui joined the AJGS as an Associate Editor responsible for evaluating submissions in the fields of Earthquake Geology, Paleoseismology, Archeoseismology, Seismotectonics and Neotectonics.
Dr. Sundararajan graduated in Mathematics from Madras University (1975) followed by a M.Sc.Tech. (1978) and a Ph.D. degrees (1983) in Geophysics from Osmania University (India). He began his career as a Research Scientist and subsequently as a Lecturer at Osmania University where he became a full Professor in 2004. Currently, he is based at the Department of Earth Sciences of Sultan Qaboos University (Oman). Dr. Sundararajan has brought out a few innovative tools for processing and interpreting of various geophysical data besides a mathematical concept called “Sundararajan Transform”. He has also introduced an alternate approach to the multidimensional “Hartley Transform” in contrast to the definition of Prof R. N. Bracewell, Stanford University (USA). Moreover, he has implemented several research projects including one on Uranium exploration. He was a member of the XIV Indian Scientific Expedition to Antarctica during 1994–95. He has co-published more than 80 papers in leading international journals and supervised several Ph.D. students in Geophysics as well as Mathematics. In 2007 the Indian Government conferred upon him the “National Award” for his significant research contributions in Geosciences. His research interests are varied and wide including geophysical data processing, mineral and ground water exploration, earth quake hazard assessment studies, …etc. In 2015 Dr. Sundararajan joined the AJGS as an Associate Editor responsible for evaluating submissions in the fields of various disciplines related to Theoretical and Applied Geophysics.
