The tasks that she dealt with were related to environmental investigation and sampling methods in soil, water and constructions. During the internship, samples from rivers and lakes were taken and analysed for water quality. Additionally, flow measurements were taken to estimate river capacity and the possibility of a flood event. Eirini gained skills in field experience, knowledge of sampling methods, environmental data analysing methods, learning of environmental legislation and understanding of the role of a consultant.
