Prof. Grigorios Tsokas

 The Geological Laboratory, which is one out of four departments of the School of Geology of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki was founded in 1976, and is responsible for a telemetric network of one central and 14 permanent peripheral seismological stations which is in operation 24 hours/day. Typical research topics include courses are: Advanced Seismology, Advanced Physics of the Earth’s Interior, Mathematics for Geophysicists, Active Tectonics, Geophysical Prospecting for the Solution of Hydrogeological and Engineering Problems, Engineering Seismology, Archaeometry, Advanced Applied Geophysics, Application of Computer Programming in Geophysics, Geophysical Field Work, Geophysical Prospecting in Ore Deposits, and Geophysical Prospecting in Geothermal Fields.

 Key persons:
In this project the GL-AUT team, led by Professor Grigorios Tsokas take part in the software improvements in the geophysical techniques to be used, is responsible for 3D resistivity surveying and interpretation, and lead the data integration task. He is an associate Prof. of Exploration Geophysics in the Geophysical Laboratory of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. He has run about 70 field surveys concerning studies application of geophysical methods for various tasks. His specialisation os applied Geophysics for micro-zonation, ground water studies, engineering problems, etc. He is author of two course notes on “Mathematical methods in Geology” and “Potential field theory and practice”. He has written the course organiser of the post graduate course in “Geophysics” of the School of Geology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
Prof. Tsokas will be aided by Dr. Panagitis Tsourlos, research assistant to numerous research projects (25) of the Geophysical Lab. Of Thessaloniki, the University Of Athens, the University of York and the British Geological Survey. He is specialized in geophysical data acquisition and interpretation (Electrical, Magnetic, GPR, Seismic), application of inversion techniques to the interpretation of Geophysical data, and development of numerical algorithms for modeling and inverting Geophysical data.
Dr. G.N. Vargemezis is also member of the team: he has worked on hydrogeological applications using geophysical methods, i.e. geoelectric methods (Schlumberger array) and electromagnetic methods (VLF). His experience is mainly on the research of fresh water deposits as well as on mineral (cold and warm) waters, and he has worked on more than 140 hydrogeological studies.
