Abstract

This work aims to characterize the quaternary tectonic activity of the Foussana trough and their effect on the spatio-temporal distribution of the sedimentary series and the hydrographic network organization by using morphological and geological approaches. The seismicity recorded in the region of “Foussana“ shows that the faults indicate a local distensive context that can be compatible with an N-S active compression affecting the Atlas and Tell domain of Tunisia
