Dr.Sid-Ali Ouadfeul is currently an associate professor at the Department of Geophysics, Geology and Reservoir Engineering, Algerian Petroleum Institute-IAP Corporate University, Algeria. He received his Engineer diploma from University of Boumerdes, Algeria, a Magister and Phd in geophysics from the Faculty of Earth Sciences, USTHB, Algeria. During his Master and doctorate research he has developed many techniques based on the fractal analysis to understand the earth underlying system. His research interests focus mainly on the studies of nonlinear process in geosciences including the fractal analysis, wavelet transform and artificial intelligence. He is an author of many papers on the subject. Dr. Ouadfeul is the organizer of many sessions in international conferences over the world about the understanding of chaotic systems in Geophysics. He serves as an editorial member of many reputable journals.

Edited Books

  • Fractal Analysis and Chaos in Geosciences

    The fractal analysis is becoming a very useful tool to process obtained data from chaotic systems in geosciences. It can be used to resolve many ambiguities in this domain. This book contains eight chapters showing the recent applications of the fractal/mutifractal analysis in geosciences. Two chapters are devoted to applications of the fractal analysis in climatology, two of them to data of cosmic and solar geomagnetic data from observatories. Four chapters of the book contain some applications of the (multi-) fractal analysis in exploration geophysics. I believe that the current book is an important source for researchers and students from universities.
