Introduction to the cartographic and sedimentological study of the coverage of the TAHANAOUT BASIN (HIGH ATLAS, MOROCCO)

This study is carried out on the northern edge of the High Atlas of the MARRAKECH basin. The TAHNAOUT DOUAR SOUR basin belongs to the Atlasic domain which is structured by the Hercynian orogeny, taken up and elevated by the Alpine orogeny, our main goal in this studying is to map the TAHNAOUT DOUAR SOUR basin and to characterize all these geological formations, For this purpose we analysed sedimentary tectonic structures ,made lithostratigraphic sections with description and draw a geological map at scale 1/25000 on a topographic background by used MapInfo platform. As final results, our studying of the TAHANOUT basin consists of two main lithological units: the basement formed by conglomeratic and turbidite deposits (alternating sandstone and pelites), and the lithological unit that forms the cover of the TAHNAOUT basin formed by a red detrital material and, carbonate deposits in some cases depending on the deposition environment, The TAHNAOUT basin is also affected by tectonic activity at the basement and Meso-Cenozoic cover levels [1-2]. Magmatic activity is absent and no trace has been recorded.
