LIFE GrIn project participated in the 17th International Conference on Environmental Science and Technology-CEST 2021.
At the Conference, held in Athens on 1-4 September 2021, results were presented from the analysis of the climatic characteristics of the Municipality of Heraklion, from the 1950s until today.
The paper, entitled Thornthwaite’s approach for assessing aridity changes during the last seven decades in the urban environment of Heraklion-Crete in Greece, was implemented by Dr. Nikolaos Proutsos, Mr. Athanasios Bourletsika, Dr. Alexandra Solomou and Dr. Constantinia Tsagari.
The goal of the research was the investigation of the changes in the water balance, but also the increase of the desertification in the urban environment in the Municipality of Heraklion – Crete, using the Thornthwaite approach.
