报告人：Prof. Nikolaos Nikolaidis
Technical University of Crete
Dr Nikolaos Nikolaidis is a professor in the School of Environmental Engineering and has served as the Deputy Rector for Financial Planning and Development of the Technical University of Crete. Prior to joining TUC, he was a professor and director of the Environmental Engineering Program at the University of Connecticut, USA. He has participated in many European and Greek funded watershed studies (eLTER, advance-eLTER, etc). He is using a “holistic” approach in solving environmental problems by conducting field studies, laboratory experimentation and mathematical modeling. He has extensive experience on watershed monitoring and modeling in Greece, Europe and the US and has developed watershed models such as the ETD model, the NTT model and the HM-1D and 3D models, the Reach Scale tempQsim model for temporary rivers, the Karstic model for predicting the flow and water quality and the integrated soil critical zone model. He is the Director of Hydrogeochemical Engineering and Remediations of Soils Laboratory (HersLab – www.herslab.tuc.gr) and manages the Koiliaris CZO. Koiliaris River watershed is a Critical Zone Observatory (www.koiliaris-czo.tuc.gr) that represents severely degraded soils due to heavy agricultural impact such as grazing, over many centuries.
