Professor Millán M. Millán

Millán M. Millán: is Former Executive Director of the CEAM-UMH Research Institute. He obtained a M.A.Sc. in Aerospace Science and Meteorology and a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Physics at the University of Toronto. He started working in Canada (1966), designing the Metal Detector coils currently used in Airports, and the Correlation Spectrometer (COSPEC) for the measurement of gases in the Atmosphere. Both instruments are still being used worldwide after more than 40 years. He became a privileged observer of the European Commission Research Programmes after being appointed to several Scientific Advisory groups in Atmospheric Chemistry and Global Change and Ecosystems from 1974 to 2006. Since 1996 his research has been focused in the relationship between Air Pollution and the atmospheric circulations in the Mediterranean. From 1995 to 2000 he established the relationship between land use changes and summer storms in the Mediterranean, and other feedbacks to the Global Climate System. The results from his research have defined scientific priorities in the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th European Commission Framework Programmes. His works have been presented to the European Parliament and at several COP meetings. He is the author of more than 100 publications, and he is the recipient of a Doctor Honoris Causa from the University Miguel Hernández in Elche (Spain).

The water resource: within some hydrological systems, it may take four recirculating (recycling) water volumes to be able to use just one volume, and then that same volume must be returned to the system to avoid desertification.
