Article
Las áreas ribereñas y los deltas ofrecen muchos servicios ecosistémicos que han llevado a su intensa utilización y degradación por parte de los humanos. Estos variados y únicos servicios han llevado a una priorización mundial de la conservación y protección de estos ecosistemas. Esta cuestión fue reconocida por la UNESCO al establecer la Cátedra Co...

Nowadays, governments are more often than not confronted with crises that are so unforeseen (i.e., the 9/11 attacks), so unexpected in nature or in extent (i.e., the SARS and H1N1 pandemic outbreaks, the Indian Ocean tsunami or Hurricane Katrina) and with such extensive social and economic effects that they may seem almost impossible to deal with....

In recent years, a vital part of water resources management plans is the implementation of hydrologic models. A wellknown example is the Soil and Water Assessment Tool most recognized as SWAT model. SWAT was applied in Thasos Island to simulate the water yield and highlight the most significant of the local torrents. The produced map identify four...
Article
Riparian areas and deltaic ecosystems are essential to humans because of the many services they offer that have been over utilized by humans for thousands of years, especially in the Mediterranean region. This is evident by the many riparian areas and deltas that are protected by international (e.g. Ramsar Convention) and European Union (Natura 200...
Article
Full-text available
Unsustainable anthropogenic activities such as agriculture and urbanization have caused excessive erosion rates that exceed soil formation rates. The Mediterranean region has and continues to experience severe erosion because of the inappropriate agricultural management, overgrazing, deforestation, wildfires, land abandonment, intense road construc...
Article
Full-text available
For the most effective and efficient management of certain natural resources (e.g. protected areas) and disasters (e.g. wildfires) transboundary approaches are needed. In addition in the management of protected areas, the role of wildfire should be incorporated, something that was ignored in the past and led to catastrophic wildfires. The Black Sea...
Conference Paper

Establishing an appropriate distribution to stand for the precipitation depth at various rainfall durations yields potential rainfall data which are not only crucial inputs in hydrologic design, with reference to the study of storm sewer pipe networks, bridges, culverts, artificial canals conveying water for agricultural purposes, river and riparia...

The present study examines the gravel bed load transport rate in Zygaktis River, Drama Prefecture, Northern Greece, and compares the field river bed load measurement values with those calculated by means of Meyer-Peter and Müller (1948) and Bakke et al. (1999) formulae, employing the B.A.G.S. (Bedload Assessment for Gravel-bed Streams) software gen...

Project ManagMed is an intergovernmental activity, which is focused in NATURA 2000 areas and consists of 11 partners in five different countries. In the framework of the project ManagMed, an environmental network was designed and deployed. The main goals from the creation of the network were two: firstly, the improvement of the communication of the...

Reducing erosion in the Mediterranean region is a major priority because of its susceptibility and millennia long human inhabitation. The objective of this paper was to assess soil erosion risk on the semi-arid island of Rhodes, Greece. Rhodes has many protected areas that are part of the Natura 2000 network. To implement this assessment a Geograph...

A major initiative in Europe is the protection of its biodiversity. To accomplish this, specific areas from all countries of the European Union are protected by the establishment of the "Natura 2000" network. One of the major threats to these areas and in general to ecosystems is soil erosion. The objective of this study was to quantitatively estim...
Article
Full-text available
Despite living on the blue planet of our solar system with water covering more than the 70% of its extent, water quantities for humans but also the other living terrestrial organisms are not unlimited. Many countries face serious problems because of water shortage. Some of the reasons are: i) the largest quantities of water are either salty or froz...
Chapter
Intermittent streams, despite having stream flow only part of the year, play a dominant role in fluvial geomorphologic processes as well as the water balance equilibrium of mountainous and semi-mountainous areas, in all the environments of our planet. These streams also exhibit high morphological and hydrologic variability because they are present...

Article
Full-text available
Riparian areas are unique and of high importance ecosystems because they are adjacent to surface freshwater bodies suchas streams, rivers and lakes. They are the semi-aquatic transitional zones (ecotones) between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.Water, soil and vegetation are the three main characteristics that differentiate them compared to othe...
Article
The Rodopi mountain range is located between Greece and Bulgaria and constitutes a natural and political boundary whose crest delimits the frontier between the two countries. However, these two neighboring countries have significant differences: Greece is one of the oldest members of the European Union (EU) while Bulgaria has just recently entered...
Article

The purpose of this paper is to develop the water balance of the Natura 2000 protected area “Nestos delta” on a monthly time step. The most significant ecosystem of the delta is the aquatic forest (dominated by Salix alba and Populus alba) which remains along the river course near the mount and the poplar plantation. During the last decade two larg...
Article
Over the last decades an escalating demand for energy has been observed to cover the increasing energy demands of the Earth's population, while energy is often the pivot that promotes the geopolitical aims of producing countries. The European Union (EU), in an effort to moderate its energy dependence on conventional energy sources, has passed Commu...
Conference Paper
On 17 November 1992, after a brief (t<30 min) but very heavy rainfall, the small torrents (four in all) flowing across the community of Eleftheres, Kavala, Northern Greece, flooded and caused extensive and intense flood disasters. It should be stressed that a few months earlier (August 1992), a ravaging fire had totally deforested the area of the d...
Conference Paper
This paper presents a new version of a well-known stochastic model to quantitatively assess drainage basin degradation in order to determine erosion in three torrent basins. This new version, 3D-structured and using G.I.S. for data processing, can provide a quantitative assessment of the degradation of any torrent basin in a very short time. Furthe...

The River Nestos empties into the Aegean Sea creating its delta. An aquatic forest of exceptional natural beauty has developed on this delta, which is considered to be the largest in the Balkans. Today, this forest is endangered due to various reasons. However, the most recent and important one is a major decrease in the sediment quantity that disc...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper presents the direct and indirect human-made impact on surface and ground water and the geological and morphological characteristics of vulnerable ecosystems and the techniques required for counteracting or minimizing it. Human-made activities have affected the natural evolutionary processes and the dynamics of the river Nestos delta. Of...
Article
Full-text available
Alluvial fans formed by the perpetual transport and deposition of material by torrential streams, frequently exhibit trenches on their main body. According to some scientists these trenches represent recent torrent activity in the deposition area. The deposits within these trenches can be classified into several categories depending on their reside...

Water management involves many scientists as well as politicians that work together trying to simulate the hydrologic balance and to schedule ambitious water management plans. However, first and foremost, wise water management practices require people participation, otherwise the water management plan will fail no matter how much money and time wil...
