Effective biodiversity conservation planning starts with the genetic characterization within and among focal populations, in order to understand the likely impact of threats for ensuring the long-term viability of the species. The Wonder Gecko, Teratoscincus keyserlingii, is one of nine members of the genus. The species is distributed in Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan, with a small isolated population in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), where it is classified nationally as Critically Endangered. Within its Arabian...

Trichonis Lake network

This network was installed after the Trichonis Lake, western Greece, 2007 earthquake sequence. Its scope was the monitoring of the aftershock sequence. Eight short period stations (0.5 to 50Hz), were installed one day after the main event (11th of April 2007) and the stations were uninstalled twenty days latter (2nd of May 2007). Data were recorded in miniseed format.

Physical fundamentals of thermomechanical processing in ultrafine-grained metallic materials manufacturing

А.I. Rudskoi, G.Е. Коdzhaspirov, J. Kliber, Ch. Apostolopoulos & D.A. Kitaeva
The processing of metallic materials through the application Thermomechanical Processing (TMP) has now become of major importance in the world research and industrial companies. A great attention is paid to study of mechanism TMP applied to different techniques and technological processes providing ultrafine-grained state of metal materials including submicro – and nanocrystalline ones. The main development in terms of obtaining bulk metallic materials received in the recent years, various schemes of TMP of metallic materials,...

Corrosion resistance and mechanical performance of steel reinforcement, before and after shot-blasting process

Ch. Apostolopoulos, Arg. Drakakaki, А.I. Rudskoi, G.Е. Коdzhaspirov & Alk. Apostolopoulos
As it is widely known, corrosion of steel reinforcement is one of the main causes of deterioration of the reinforced concrete structures. Corrosion phenomena combined with seismic loads aggravate the situation. For this reason, in the present paper, an effort is made to upgrade the performance of steel reinforcement against corrosion, using the shot blasting method. Precisely, two groups of specimens were prepared, one of which had previously been shot blasted. Afterwards, the specimens were...
