Earth Science

A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. One must already have an undergraduate degree to apply for a master's program. Most master's degree program would require students to complete a master's thesis or research paper.

A Master of Science degree is concerned with several Earth systems. These include interaction between the biosphere, lithosphere, cryosphere and hydrosphere or the climatic consequences of the interaction between different components. The degree focuses on research of these different systems.

Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, or Hellas as called from ancient times, is a country in Southeast Europe. According to the 2011 census, Greece's population is around 11 million.

Crete ranks as the largest of the Greek islands in regards to population and size. It is an essential part of the national economy rich in Greek culture and heritage. It is renowned for its wide variety of flower and bird species.

Why clay minerals?

Interest in clays results from their common availability, and their unique physical and chemical properties. No other minerals currently attract so great an interest.

In addition to their conventional ancient use as bricks, tiles, ceramics and for paper coating and waste management more recently, clays have found many novel applications. Clay minerals have provided a boost in technology because they are inexpensive nanomaterials, and as such, they have a huge potential for the synthesis of polymer nanocomposites with superior mechanical and thermal properties. The optimisation of adsorption, colloidal and rheological properties also opens prospects of using clay minerals for medical uses, pollution control, and environmental protection. Clay minerals play a role in economic geology (both as an important mineral resource and in energy resource exploration) and soil management. Clays also have many negative effects in geotechnical engineering, manifested in the form of landslides, mudflows, and the deterioration of clay-based construction materials.... [-]
