Scientific Work

(In chronological order)

The vast scientific work of ARCHELON can be seen in the large number of papers published mostly in scientific journals. We provide below a provisional list of all these papers; probably there are more which we couldn't locate. ARCHELON researchers and personnel as well as students working for ARCHELON have drafted these papers or co-authored them. Many of the papers below are accompanied by their full text in pdf format. You may download the papers you wish. In case you need a paper that does not appear as a pdf file, we may post a hard copy to you provided you send us your postal address at info@archelon.gr. Thank you!
