Department of Water Resources and Environmental Engineering
The Laboratory of Hydrology and Water Resources Management, founded in 1998 is one of the four laboratories of the Department of Water Resources and Environmental Engineering, of the School of Civil Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens. Its research is focused on all aspects of the water cycle, including water policy and water resources management. Over the last 2 decades, the laboratory has successfully undertaken numerous national, international and European research projects on water resources and the environment. Its ongoing research work includes: ETC, OpenMI-Life, Floodmed, Meddman, IWRM.NET, FLAPP, HYDROCARE, TRUST as well as the Educate! E-learning postgraduate course. Research focuses on Hydrological analysis and simulation, hydrological data analysis and management, water resources assessment, assessment of extreme hydrological phenomena (floods, droughts) and their consequences, climate change and its impact on water resources, radar hydrology, studies for the exploitation and management of water resources, hydroinformatics, GIS for water resources, development of databases for hydrological and meteorological information, development of mathematical / computational hydrological models, development of mathematical / computational optimization models, development of mathematical / computational water resources management models.
