Description 
Summary

The 'Wind and Wave Atlas of the Hellenic Seas' is a product of the research project entitled ESPEN. The main motives that led to producing and distributing this Atlas was, firstly, the increasing demand for wave and wind data in coastal and offshore Hellenic seas; in addition, the need for a new Atlas was imminent, as the only available Atlas for the Hellenic Seas was produced 15 years ago and was solely based on visual observations, Athanassoulis, Skarsoulis (1992). This project was funded by the European Regional Development Fund (75%) and national funds (25%) through the General Secretariat of Research and Technology (GSRT), Ministry of Development, Greece.
