Short summary
In this paper we present an original multidisciplinary workflow involving various tools (e.g., seismic profiles, satellite images, well logs) and techniques (e.g., photogeology, seismic interpretation, well correlation, geophysics, geochronology, backstripping) as a basis for discussing the potential factors controlling the tectono-stratigraphic architecture within the Palaeozoic intracratonic basins of the Saharan Platform using the Reggane, Ahnet, Mouydir and Illizi basins as examples.
