Geology

 

I studied at the Institute for Earth Sciences (I.V.A.) of the Utrecht University. The subject of my M.Sc. thesis was:

The Structural Geology and Tectonics of Precambrian Metamorphic rocks in the Sinai, Egypt.

The full text is currently on line.

I am continuing the research in the Arabian Nubian Shield through fieldwork in Saudi Arabia. This research should, hopefully, lead to a Ph.D. thesis.
