The sedimentation of the Neogene post-Tortonian in the dome zone of Northern Tunisia was carried in two kinds of basins corresponding to subsident syncline gutters born of the Tortonian folding and pull-apart basins associated to the dextral subequatorial strike-slips. The Neogene sediments contain a rearranged fauna of Cretaceous, Paleogene and Lower Miocene stages. This phenomenon indicates its post-tectonic character. The Neogene series are framed by two major unconformities which indicate its sedimentation in a compressif structural setting, characterizing the Northern Tunisian Atlas.
