The tectonic evolution of the Arabian–Nubian Shield (ANS), the northern continuation of the East African Orogen (EAO), is enigmatic and a matter of controversy. The EAO is observed as a N–S trending major suture zone separating East and West Gondwanaland. It documents a prolonged tectonic history bracketed by the fragmentation of Rodinia Supercontinent and the amalgamation of Gondwana. The ANS is dominated by Neoproterozoic juvenile continental crust (i.e., crust formed directly from the mantle…

Reconstructing orogens without biostratigraphy: The Saharides and continental growth during the final assembly of Gondwana-Land.
The method developed here may be useful to reconstruct the structure of some of the Precambrian orogenic belts before biostratigraphy became possible and the Sahara appears to be underlain by a double orocline similar to the Hercynian double o rocline in western Europe and northwestern Africa.
Application of remote sensing techniques in lithologic mapping of Djanet Region, Eastern Hoggar Shield, Algeria
Application of remotely sensed data in geological mapping has been the subject matter of many studies in the last decades. The optimal exploitation of high spatial resolution satellite imagery can
