Virtual Invited Talk: The science of Meteorology and Remote Sensing applications

On December 10th, 2020, the EXCELSIOR H2020 project, the ERATOSTHENES Centre of Excellence (ECoE) and the Department of Civil Engineering and Geomatics of the Cyprus University of Technology organized a virtual invited talk by Dr. Kleanthis Nicolaides.

Dr Nicolaides present status is that of the Director of the Department of Meteorology of Cyprus (since August 2016), while he was employed by the Department since February 1988. He owns a BSc Degree in Physics, from the School of Physics and Mathematics, Aristotelian University of Thessaloniki Greece (1978-1983), a PhD Degree on Meteorology with a thesis on “Synoptic and Dynamic Study of the Depressions affected the wider area of Cyprus during the cold season” from the same school as above (2002-2005), and a “Magister” Degree from the MBA Program of the School of Management and Economics of the University of Cyprus (2011-2013). He was awarded with Scholarships from the Government of Cyprus, for Applied Meteorology and Weather Forecast, UK Met. Office College (1993-1994), the US Government (Fulbright Commission) for Advanced Technology and Remote Sensing, EEC Enterprise Radar manufacturer Alabama USA, NCAR Boulder Colorado USA, University of North Dakota USA (1996), the Government of Cyprus, for Advanced Weather Forecast, UK Met. Office College (2009), and the University of Cyprus and the School of Management (2011-2013). He has published more than 40 papers on Synoptic Meteorology and Synoptic Climatology, regarding mainly severe weather over the area of Cyprus while he attended more than 20 technical trainings, a great majority of them on Remote Sensing and applications such as radar Meteorology, Satellite Meteorology, Automatic Weather Stations. He has a substantial number of presentations to Seminars, Workshops, Conferences regarding severe weather and the Synoptic Meteorology and Climatology of the area of Cyprus, while he was involved with several EU and INTERREG Scientific Programs, such as FLASH, BERTIS, MEDEA etc.
He is at the present the Permanent Representative of Cyprus to the Word Meteorological Organization and to several European Organisation such as EUMETNET and ECOMET.
