  • Title: "Petros Kanaginis, his contribution in the improvement of agricultural environment of Greece during the period between the two World Wars".

    More

  • Title: "Examination of the Atmospheric Conditions Associated with Ozone in the Lower Troposphere and the Boundary Layer Over the Eastern Mediterranean". Collaboration with the Academy of Athens, Institut fuer Chemie and Dynamik der Geosphaere, Forschungszentrum Juelich, Germany and Laboratoire d'Aerologie, UMR 5560, Universite Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France.

    More

  • EUMETSAT (European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites)European Program in collaboration with the Laboratory of Atmospheric of Physics of the University of Thessaloniki and other European Research Centers.

  • Scientific Director: Christos Zerefos

  • The construction of a sensor measuring extremely low frequencies (ELF) which is going to serve in the MKF program entitled "Development of a station recording Schumann Resonances and utilization of the measurements in the study of neuro-physiological and climatic parameters", has already started.

  • More

  • Title: "The indoor Air Quality in coaches of the Athens Metro". The indoor air quality in the mass transportation media is not as good as expected and in many cases worse than that of the outdoor environment.

    More
