Taher Zouaghi

Dr. Taher Zouaghi has a Tunisian nationality and was born in the Béja Governorate. He is an associate professor and consultant in Geophysics at the Centre of Water Research and Technologies (CERTE), Borj Cédria Technopark in Tunisia. Now, he works at the Faculty of Earth Sciences, KAU, in Saudi Arabia within the technical cooperation framework between the two countries. In 2008, he received a doctorate thesis (PhD) degree in geophysics applied to structural and geodynamics, and then in 2012, he received a professorship diploma (HDR). The two diplomas were prepared at both the Faculty of Sciences of Tunis and the Borj Cédria Technopark. He conducts research in geophysics and tectonics and has published more than 40 research papers and chapters published in the international journals and conferences in the field of the paleoseismicity, seismic stratigraphy and seismotectonics, potential and nonpotential applied geophysics, forward modeling and inversion, well-logging and petroleum reservoir characterization, hydrogeophysics, salt tectonics, and geodynamics. He has supervised and still supervises many students in engineering, masters and PhD in these fields. His professional memberships include some committees and organizations (e.g., ATEIG, EAGE, AAPG, and WSEAS), and he is solicited as an expert by several scientific journals and books and scientific committees.

Latest work with IntechOpen by Taher Zouaghi

This book is devoted to diverse aspects of earthquake researches, especially to new achievements in seismicity that involves geosciences, assessment, and mitigation. Chapters contain advanced materials of detailed engineering investigations, which can help more clearly appreciate, predict, and manage different earthquake processes. Different research themes for diverse areas in the world are developed here, highlighting new methods of studies that lead to new results and models, which could be helpful for the earthquake risk. The presented and developed themes mainly concern wave's characterization and decomposition, recent seismic activity, assessment-mitigation, and engineering techniques. The book provides the state of the art on recent progress in earthquake engineering and management. The obtained results show a scientific progress that has an international scope and, consequently, should open perspectives to other still unresolved interesting aspects.
