Environment and Natural Disasters: New methods to evaluate and improve the environmental quality and encounter the natural hazards

The PEFYKA research project, Action KRIPIS, is funded by the General Secretariat for Research and Technology, Ministry of Education, Greece and the European Regional Development Fund (Sectoral Operational Programme : Competitiveness and Entrepreneurship, NSRF 2007-2013)/ European Commission. The project constitutes a National Development Action (Competitiveness and Entrepreneurship, NSRF 2007-2013).

The project reflects one of the current development plans of FORTH where four (4) Institutes of FORTH collaborate towards an integrated interdisciplinary approach. This project aims to develop methods for measuring and improving the quality of the natural and urban environment. The central aim of the project is to develop and implement innovative methods, experimental devices and computational tools for analyzing, monitoring, studying, protecting and improving the quality of the natural and urban environment, to study and predict the natural disasters and the impacts of climate change.

The Laboratory of Geophysical - Satellite Remote Sensing and Archaeo-environment (GeoSat ReSeArch) of the Institute for Mediterranean Studies participates in the particular project targeting towards the development of tomographic methodologies for the efficient mapping of structures in shallow marine environments and the employment of satellite ground-based remote sensing techniques for the detection and monitoring of soil pollution.
