Abstract

The Earth’s interior is a source of heat, which attributes our planet a uniquely distinctive feature. It is actually the heat source that helps regulate the formation and evolution of rocks toward larger scales, while trending minerals and sediments toward minutely smaller scales. In this respect, the exploration of georesources (by-products) has to be closely related to pet- rogenesis (processes). Indeed, one of the major challenges encountered in quantitative geo- sciences lies in the eager attempt to retrieve the unknown causes of well-known effects, or inversely, predicting the unknown effects of well-known causes. It is actually in this junction that the beauty of science generally resides. More particularly, our planet is an ever-lasting stronghold of surprises worth of exhaustive studies, ranging from the inner thermodynamic processes affecting rocks evolution to the outer by-products characterizing exploration. Noteworthy, also, is that any geodynamic context proves to display peculiar geological, mineralogical, and petrological aspects, which help characterize the wide range of geographic areas lying on the surface. These proceedings’ volume is an outcome of the best-selected papers, accepted for pre- sentation at the first Springer Conference of the Arabian Journal of Geosciences (CAJG-1), Tunisia 2018. The book exhibits a selection of the most recently conducted studies dealing with the area of rocks’ petrogenesis and exploration of georesources, elaborated by experi- enced researchers from, but not limited to, well-established research institutes based in the Mediterranean and Mid-Eastern regions. The major raised themes and issues include, mainly, the composition and thermodynamics of rocks, mineralogy and mineral resources, geology and exploration of ore deposits, geochemistry, and provenance of sediments. This volume should provide new insights into the processes and products associated with the Earth’s interior and the relating georesources. More specifically, the most recently drawn observations and proxy datasets, as figured in the book, should help fill some important gaps persisting in the existing mineralogical, geochemical, petrological, and volcano-logical records across, but not restricted to, the Mediterranean and Mid-Eastern regions.
