Nicolas was an adviser at the Ministry of Research, in charge of Universe and Environment Sciences. He received the Harry Hess Medal of the American Geophysical Union in 2004 for his work on earth dynamic. He recently published 2050: Hazardous assignment. In it, Nicolas raises a series of questions about the climate changes, the world demographic evolution and the limits of oil resources in order to demonstrate the fact that 2050 is a critical assignment for the planet and its inhabitants.

The lecture, in English, will be delivered at the Omani Cultural Club (Nadi Al Thaqafi), Fahoud Street, Road No. 2221, Qurum), on Sunday, January 30, at 8pm.
Professor Francoise Boudier’s work about the oceanic lithosphere encompassed many types of ophiolites as well as the actual oceanic ridges. Since 1980, she has been co-director of a geological research programme in Oman ophiolite, dedicated to a structural mapping of the ophiolite.
The lecture will be given in English, at the Omani Cultural Club on Sunday, February 6, at 8pm.
