PhD Programme in Dynamics of Biogeochemical Flows and Their Applications

Within this Program leaded by the our group future PhD candidates will be able to comprehensively address environmental and socio-economic priority worldwide issues, such as the planning and integrated management of coastal areas, coastal waters and aquatic ecosystems, and port, water and general infrastructures.
