FIXLAB – 4, Advance Modelling and Spatial Analysis Lab

Facility type: FIXLAB

Access provider: Coastal & Marine Research,  IACM, FORTH 

Title: Advance Modelling and Spatial Analysis Lab


Includes all climatic and coastal hydrodynamics models used to determine long term environmental conditions. The numerical modeling applications are used to identify the impact of past events but also to forecast future climatic and hydrodynamic conditions. Spatial Analysis methods are used to estimate the environmental vulnerabilities and risks of cultural heritage site including socioeconomic aspects.


  • Geoarchaeological Risk Assessment
  • Paleoenvironmental Reconstruction
  • Site-Specific Natural Hazards Impact Evaluation

Technical Info

  • Forecasting & early warning wave/currents/coastal hydrodynamics models operating around Crete and transferable to other sites of interest at request
  • GIS software and remote sensing software
