The geological heritage of Oman provides for a wealth of knowledge that will be valuable in understanding geological phenomena. Oman is considered as a hot spot among international geologists and is considered an “open book” of geological and geomorphologic education. As such, Oman will be a key to understanding the world’s ecosystems and plays an important role in realizing the value for long term conservation of our habitats. The unique geological features of Oman offer excellent sites to explore and demonstrate the diversity of nature and provide understanding or our planet in general.
The „Oman Virtual Museum of Geology“ is taking you on a journey to some of the most spectacular geological phenomena on our plant.
The project has been awarded with the FORD Middle East Environmental Grant, which enables the implementation of this exciting project.
