Scienific biography stages. 1967 - defend a candidate paper The Kokchetav massive Early Precambrain geology. 1992 - defend a doctor graduation paper on The Earth crust formation of the Anabar shield. 1992-1993 - working in The New Mexico Institute of mining and technology, New Mexico , USA , on the Grant of the National Scientific foundation (NSF) about the Siberian craton Precambrian evolution. 260 papers are published as well as 5 monographs in cooperation.


Main results. In the Kokchetav massive, North Kazakhstan , the Mesoproterozoic age is established for the Earth's crust and layered folded nature revealed for the eclogite complex. In the Siberian craton and the Anabar Shield the Paleoproterozoic collision systems came to light as a part of the supercontinent Pangea-1. The systematic of metamorphic carbonate rocks is worked and proposed for the Subcomission on metamorphic rocks (SCMR) of the International Commission on Systhematic in Petrology (ICP) of the Interrnational Union of the Geological Sciences (IUGS). The concept on the lithospheric keel for the Yakutian Diamondiferous Province got involved with Rosen's work at present in a Cooperative Project with the Joint Stock Company ALROSA

Scientific projects proposed by O.M. Rosen are supported by Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR) at 1994, 1997, 2000, 2003, 2006 years, National Science Foundation (USA), 1992-1993, Subcomission on metamorphic rocks (SCMR) , 1975- 1985. .
