Another Physical Geography course from Stockholm University was organized at NEO in March. Τhe main goal of this course was for the students to acquire knowledge in a variety of methodologies for environmental research.
The study schedule consisted of two phases, the first one was the excursions to different places all around Messenia and Arcadia, and the second one was the field work carried out at four study areas.
Topics that were covered were the geomorphology of the area, the impacts of human pressure on ecosystems and how climate change and land use processes might shape the landscape in the future. During the excursions they visited a number of sites mainly in Messenia.
