Climate change expert publishes among leading contributors to new textbook


Professor El-Askary was among the top climatologists contributing to a new textbook on the topic of climate change.

Professor Hesham El-Askary, Ph.D., associate professor and director of the Hazards, Global and Environmental Change and Computational Science Programs in the Schmid College of Science and Technology co-authored six chapters in the prestigious three-volume book series on
Regional Climate Change in the Mediterranean
published by Springer.

El-Askary’s chapters appear in volume three of the series and are case studies focused on the impact of climate change on sea level rise over the Delta region in Egypt.

The books involve many of the leading earth systems scientists from around the world and are a result of four years of work on the part of the contributors. The trio of books was funded by Mega project CIRCE at $13 million euros, making it one of the most highly-funded science projects. El-Askary’s chapters  was selected from the participating scientists to focus his work on Egypt, serving as the principal investigator for his work package and the lead on the case studies for that region.

The book may be previewed online at the
Springer website
