A tectono-sedimentary study of Cretaceous series in Northern Tunisia (dome zone) shows that these series were deposited in a fragmentary, basin characterized by a jerky and active halokinesis. The remobilization of Trisassic salt at different periods during the Cretaceous has created diapiric highs with lacunar and reduced sedimentation. The Triassic bodies were emplaced in diapiric structures born in major faults. These variations aren't only linked to Triassic domes but also to major features which have delimited highs and depocenters in a distensive-strike slip context.
