Water Systems, Information & Services
Isn't it fascinating to know the path that all water follows as it moves around Earth in different states?
Environmental disturbances, population pressure, economic globalisation and climate change do not only dictate a more sustainable use of the limited water resources, but also require improved protection against water-driven hazards at the societal level.
With the help of this blog, I share my passion and knowledge - on understanding hazards and hydrology in many different aspects from physical modelling to decision-making - with (early career) researchers, service providers, policy-makers and the general public near and far.
I write about my work, the scientific insights and technological developments and how I perceive them, that aim to provide to society the relevant knowledge, information and services that could drive decision- and policy-making at national, European and global scales.

My name is Ilias Pechlivanidis, an Associate Professor and senior researcher, service developer and hydrology enthusiast.
I work on water-related challenges, exploring strategies for improving the understanding of environmental systems, including the hydro-meteorologic prognosis at different time horizons. I am driven by a multi-faced expertise, based on the deep understanding of the interplay between in-situ and earth observations, climate, hydrology, data analysis, modelling, user needs and engagement, and decision- and policy-making.
