Since 1989 he teaches Atmospheric and Environmental Physics and Chemistry, which are also the main topics of his research interests (e.g., Remote Sensing, Climate Dynamics, Atmospheric Physics & Chemistry, Environmental Change, Non-linear Processes). He has established four international research Laboratories in the Department of Environmental Physics of NKUA. He has published 11 Books-monographs of SPRINGER, more than 300 research papers in refereed journals and contributed with specific chapters to 6 more international books in the fields of Remote Sensing, Atmospheric Physics & Chemistry, and Environmental Change. Also, he has published 2 Books-monographs of CRC Taylor and Francis and Matrix Rom, 5 university books in Greek in the field of Atmospheric Physics and Chemistry. He is Honorary Professor of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, Fellow (elected) of the Royal Meteorological Society (Oxford, UK) and full Member (elected) of the European Academy of Natural Sciences (Hanover, Germany). He is a member or complimentary member of several scientific societies including the American Meteorological Society, the American Geophysical Union and the European Geophysical Union. He has coordinated or participated in more than 50 large international research competitive projects, funded by International Organizations (e.g. European Commission, ESA, NATO, WMO). He has been appointed as Specialty Chief Editor of "Frontiers in Environmental Science" of the NATURE Publishing Group (2013-2018), Associate Editor of the “International Journal of Remote Sensing” of T&F (since 2006), Editor of the “Remote Sensing Letters” of T&F (since 2013), Editor of the "International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health" - Section Environmental Engineering and Public Health of MDPI (since 2017), Editor of the "Big Earth Data", sister journal of “Int J Dig Earth” (Chinese Academy of Sciences) (T&F) (since 2017), Adviser of the “Environmental Science and Pollution Research” (2007-2009), Guest Editor of a number of refereed international Journals and member of the Editorial Board in several International Journals indexed in Web of Science. He is also a reviewer of various Journals, EU, UN,US Scientific Proposals and Reports. His papers have received more than 16,000 citations, with H-index = 57 in WoS (H-index = 80 in Google Scholar). In particular, his contribution to the understanding of the Antarctic ozone hole split in 2002 has been reported as highlight by the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) (https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/BF02987584) and by Thomson ISI as "Hot Paper" (http://archive.is/zXLhZ) in the field of Ecology / Environment. Additionally, his contribution to the exploration of the scaling dynamics in global atmospheric ozone and temperature has been identified (http://archive.sciencewatch.com/dr/erf/2011/11augerf/11augerfVaro/) (August 1, 2011) by Thomson-ISI as “Emerging Research Fronts Paper” in the field of Geosciences. He has been awarded the gold A.S. Popov medal of the Russian A.S. Popov Society, the RADI Award of Chinese Academy of Sciences and the MOST/ESA Award.
