    Elina Tragou
    Title:Associate Professor
    Affiliation:Department of Marine Sciences
    Office hours:Wednesdays and Fridays, 12:00 - 14:00
    Phone:(+30) 22510 36843
    Curriculum vitae:cv


    My research activities include:

    • air-sea interaction processes

    • thermohaline circulation and

    • oceane climate variability and change


    My teaching activities at the Department of Marine Sciences of the University of the Aegean include undergraduate-level courses: Physics, Ocean and Climate Change, Air-Sea Interaction, Oceanography of the Mediterranean. At graduate level, I contribute to the syllabus of the course Coastal Oceanography and Climate Change with lectures regarding air-sea exchanges and their effect on semi-enclosed basins.

    Other activities
