The Marine Geology and Physical Oceanography Laboratory was established in 1989 within the Geology Department of Patras University. The Laboratory is at present by far the largest teaching and research University center in its field in Greece. The three main aims of the Laboratory are:

  • To carry out fundamental research in the fields of Marine Geology, Physical Oceanography and Marine Pollution.
  • To train undergraduate and postgraduate students in Marine Sciences.

The Laboratory of Sedimentology (LS) was established 1984, inside the Geology Department of the University of Patras. The laboratory has been mainly concerned with facies analysis and interpretation of ancient and recent depositional environments, sedimentary basin analysis and hydrocarbon habitats either in extensional or compressional tectonic settings.

The Sedimentological Laboratoty contributed greatly to the foundation of the Greek Sedimentological Association during 2003, which is the branch of the International Association of Sedimentologists in Greece.

Avramidis  Pavlos

Avramidis Pavlos

appointment: Associated Professor
sector: General, Marine Geology & Geodynamics
research:

Pavlos Avramidis is Assistant Professor of Sedimentology in the Department of Geology, University of Patras Greece. His research focuses on Geology - Sedimentology of Aquatic Systems, particularly in coastal ecosystems (lagoons, deltas, bays). He graduated from the Department of Geology, University of Patras, Greece, in 1995, and in 1999 concluded his PhD in the scientific field of “Petroleum Sedimentology”. He was a graduate (PhD) and postdoctoral scholar of the Greek State Scholarship Foundation (IKY) in the subject of Energy Mineral Resources and Geology – Oceanography respectively. Since 1998 he studied more than 30 large public works projects, as a geotechnical consultant on subjects of geotechnical engineering, geology, hydrogeology and environmental sedimentology. From 2008 till 2014 he was Assistant Professor of Geology of Aquatic Systems of the Technological Educational Institute of Western Greece. He has large experience in performing deep spot drilling and geotechnical design – instrumental monitoring as well as coastal and environmental sedimentology. His research focuses on palaeonvironmental reconstruction based on sedimentary analyses, radiocarbon dating and faunal assemblages. He teaches the following courses for under graduate students: (a) Sedimentology, (b) Introduction to Geology and (c) Geological Mapping and MSc course Geology of Aquatic Systems. He has participated as principal researcher in 15 national research programs of the University of Patras and is currently scientific coordinator on six (6) research programs implemented by the Research Committee of the University of Patras.
