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.

This book deals with different aspects of gravity that has proved its effectiveness throughout the world, hence their solicitation in recent years. Fundamental theories, applications, and tools have been presented, emphasizing the implementation of the gravity technique. Different research themes for diverse areas in the world are detailed here, highlighting new methods of studies that could be helpful for sophisticated and modern development over the next few years. Four main sections are presented: Gravity Interpretation Tools in Geoscience, Gravity in Geoscience Applications, Gravity in Industrial Technology, and Quantum Gravity. Theoretical and acquisition tools and adapted processing methods have been designed to take into account the initial data, and modeling results thus converge toward a better solution. This book, which makes a worthwhile contribution to the topic gravity, is specifically addressed to specialists, researchers, and industry professionals who shall find its content extremely useful for a better comprehension of the geological, spatial, and industrial aspects of gravity.
