We are proud and honored to inform that our prestigious colleague, Prof. Zakaria Hamimi (IAGETH National Chapter, Egypt), has been awarded the Appreciation Certificate and Medal of the The Arab Mining and Petroleum Association, which is one of the oldest scientific societies in Egypt, “for his leading role and contribution in the fields of mining, geology and simplification of sciences”.
Prof. Zakaria Hamimi is the President of the Arabian Geoscience Union (ArabGU).
*The International Association for Geoethics (IAGETH) and the Arabian Geosciences Union (ArabGU) signed a MoU on 25th November 2015″
Please, join us to congratulate Prof. Hamimi!
Prof. Zakaria Hamimi is a structural geologist who spent the majority of his academic career at Benha University, Egypt, along with some years at Sana’a University, Yemen, and King Abdulaziz University, Saudi Arabia. He has worked in many field-related sub-disciplines of Earth Sciences, including geologic mapping, microstructural analysis, quantitative strain analysis, paleostress reconstruction, active tectonics, tectonic geomorphology, crustal deformation, engineering geology, shear zone-related mineralizations and image processing. He used all these fields to construct detailed geologic and structural maps for key areas in the Arabian-Nubian Shield, the northern extension of the East African Orogen, and to decipher the tectonic evolution and deformation history of the Neoproterozoic shield rocks. Zakaria Hamimi is the president, and one of the founding team, of the Arabian Geosciences Union since its establishment in 2012. He has received the medal of the Egyptian Geological Society of Egypt in 2015.
