XENIOS project , June 2014


Mr. Palaiologou and Mr. Tataris, PhD candidates of the University of Aegean visited NEO to perform sampling for land use mapping within the Messinia and neighboring prefectures. The scope of the field trip was to gather information towards producing the input data for forest fires behavior models. This is an extension of the collaboration with the AoA group of NEO, within the frame of the XENIOS project "Climate Change Impacts on the Touristic Development of Sensitive Areas in Greece. Pilot Study: Messinia - Αrea of Integrated Tourist Development" coordinated by Prof. Zerefos under National funding. Prof. Kalabokidis (University of the Aegean) sent a thank you letter, cordially acknowledging facilities and NEO management treatment.
