  1. Within the framework of the Research program “Investigation of the marine area of Kos-Nisyros for detecting submarine volcanoes” conducted by HCMR, in September 1999 I visited the École et Observatoire des Sciences de la Terre (ULP-CNRS) at the University of Strasbourg for one week, where I was trained on operating new methods of converting analog lithoseismic recordings of into a digital format, using data of the underwater area of Kos-Nisyros as a pilot. Processing of the lithoseismic sections was part of the research program SEISCAN (Archiving early seismic paper records from deep-water European seas) of the European Commission on Marine Science and Technology.
  2. As part of the Research Program «GEOWARN» I visited the Osservatorio Vesuviano Napoli (OVNI) (Institute of Geochemistry) Prof. Giovanni Chiodini Vesuvius, in Naples, Italy and the Campi Flegrei in Solfatara where I was informed on matters of volcanic hazard.
  3. Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH-Zurich). Institute of Mineralogy and Petrography: Prof. Dr. Volker J. Dietrich & Institute of Cartography: Prof. Dr. Lorenz Hurni.
