Automatic Monitoring Stations


1) The deployment of the necessary infrastructure for the detailed and comprehensive monitoring of important environmental parameters that are necessary for the understanding of hydro-biogeochemical processes in the watershed and coastal zone.
2) creation of an early warning system for environmental accidents and natural disasters in the basin and in the coastal zone.
3) The modernization and upgrading of hydroacoustic methodology in order to expand the study and monitoring of the most […]

Development of integrated basin management and associated coastal and marine zone

The aim of the project is the development of methodologies for the Integrated Management of the River Basin and the Coastal System. To achieve this goal Sperchios river and Maliakos gulf will be adopted as a pilot area, in which biological, hydrometeorological, physicochemical and socio-economic monitoring networks, will be installed to effectively study all key environmental processes in relation to human activities and impacts in the region.

Additionally, as part of this research effort, the effects of climate change and land […]
