Analysis of tourism potential for Crete island, Greece


Mantzarakis A. and Nastos P.


To describe the tourism potential of an area, not only single meteorological parameters have to be taken into account, but also thermal sensation and people’s thermal comfort. The latter can be estimated by the use of human energy balance models and the derived thermal indices, which comprise all...

Municipal solid waste management and landfill site selection in Greece: irrationality versus efficiency


Hadjibiros K. , Dermatas D. and Laspidou C.S.


Municipal solid waste (MSW) collection and disposal is a major problem of urban environment in the world today. MSW management solutions have to be technologically feasible, legally and socially acceptable and environmentally and financially sustainable. European policy is pushing to a rational...

Modelling the dispersion of harmful algal bloom (HAB) in the Thermaikos gulf (NW Aegean Sea)


Savvidis Υ.G, Patoucheas D.P., Nikolaidis G. and Koutitas C.G.


Coastal hydrodynamics are directly related to important environmental and ecological issues. This paper focuses on the study of harmful phytoplankton cells’ dispersion, after an episode of an algal bloom, based on mathematical modeling. The case of Thermaikos Gulf was used for the simulation. The...

Application of phosphate water and slime in agriculture: investigation of the mobility of the pollutants using hydrologic modeling


Diamantopoulos E., Dercas N., Soulis K., Jellali S. and Stefopoulou A.


The use of phosphate slime or phosphate water in a Mediterranean region (Gafsa, Tunisia) was investigated through hydrologic modeling. The simulations were made using the Hydrus 1D software package for a typical soil in the area of Gafsa (Tunisia). Two main applications were examined: mixing the...
