Nicholas will be joined by Gregory R. Hancock, associate professor at the University of Newcastle, Australia; José F. Martín, associate professor at the Complutense University of Madrid, Spain; Rod Eckels, a graduate in surveying of The University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia; and assistant Nésto Hernando, Complutense University, Spain.
