Welcome to GSO

welcome_picOman is well known as the “paradise of geology”. The diverse and fascinating geology displayed on mountains, deserts, caves and wadis allows studying the details of both the continental and oceanic plates . The geology of Oman represents a history of more than 800 million years and resembles almost all the chapters of tectonic events and climatic conditions  throughout the Earth’s history. In here, you can touch the Moho, which separates between the crust and the Mantle, and you can as well see the initiation and development of life in this wonderful planet.
