Pan-Hellenic Award for the PhD candidate at the University of Thessaly, Giorgos Proia

Pan-Hellenic Award for the PhD candidate at the University of Thessaly, Giorgos Proia, and for his research work on "Timeless evolution of suspended particles PM10 in the atmosphere of Volos". He was awarded the first prize on the sidelines of the 14th International Conference on Meteorology, Climatology and Atmospheric Physics held in Alexandroupolis from 15 to 17 October. The problem of air pollution in the city of Volos is timeless. Airborne particles(particulate matter PM10) are one of the most important pollutants in urban areas and are a complex mixture of tiny particles coming from both man-made and natural sources. From the results it is confirmed that a very important factor in the formation of the concentration levels of the suspended particles is both the value of the wind speed and the direction.
