A new karst modelling approach along different tectonic contacts
Faculty members of Applied Physics and Astronomy are participating as principal investigator and co-principal investigator in UNESCO IGCP project. The project objective is to investigate a new karst hydrogeology modelling approach along different tectonic contacts.
|Brief outline of the project|
By using the very well documented site of the Koiliaris Critical Zone Observatory in Crete-Greece, this project will bring together the disciplines of structural geology, geomorphology and speleology together with hydrology modelling science. The aim is to solve one of the most prominent problems of karst hydrology which is the unknown or “extended” watershed areas contributing in the inter-catchment flow in karstic areas.
The outcomes of the project will be knowledge transfer in areas where the hydrology modelling is not developed like the Sultanate of Oman and the United Arab Emirates, while it will develop a new methodology in karst hydrology modelling by utilizing large amount of geology data (faults, fold axis etc.) in physically-based hydrology model like Penn State Integrated Hydrology Model (PIHM).
Duration: 2021 - 2022
