About the editors

Haroun Chenchouni:

Dr. Haroun Chenchouni is an associate professor and a research scientist (Ecologist) at the Higher National School of Forests (Khenchela, Algeria). He is a former associate professor at the University of Tebessa (Algeria). He holds a M.Sc. (Magister) in Dryland Ecology from the University of Ouargla (Algeria) and a doctorate degree in Ecology and Environment from the University of Batna. He graduated as an engineer in Plant Ecology and Forest Ecosystems from the Department of Biological Sciences (University of Batna, Algeria). His research interests are fairly broad; he uses statistical modeling approaches to understand how natural environments, mainly climatic and edaphic factors, and anthropogenic perturbations influence biological interactions, shape trends in population dynamics, and influence community diversity. He uses various biological models to investigate biological interactions and community ecology of arid and semiarid ecosystems of North Africa. At various universities in Algeria, he teaches forest ecology, biostatistics, and ecological modeling.

Helder I. Chaminé:

H. I. Chaminé is a skilled geologist and a professor of engineering geosciences at the School of Engineering (ISEP) of the Polytechnic of Porto, with over 32 years of experience in multidisciplinary geosciences research, consultancy, and practice. He studied geological engineering and geology (B.Sc., 1990) at the Universities of Aveiro and Porto (Portugal), respectively. He received his Ph.D. in geology at the University of Porto in 2000 and spent his postdoctoral research in applied geosciences at the University of Aveiro (2001-2003). In 2011, he received his Habilitation (D.Sc.) in geosciences from Aveiro University. Before joining the academy, he worked for over a decade on international projects for mining, geotechnics and groundwater industry and/or academia related to geodynamics and regional geology, hard-rock hydrogeology and water resources, engineering geosciences and applied geomorphology, rock engineering, and georesources.

Zhihua Zhang:

Zhihua Zhang is Taishan distinguished professor and a leader of “big data mining for climate change” research group at Shandong University, China. His research interests are big data mining, climate change mechanisms, environmental evolution, and sustainability. Prof. Zhang has published 6 first-authored books in Springer/Elsevier/DeGruyter and 60 first-authored articles, some of which were reported by New Scientist (UK), China Science Daily, and China Social Science Daily. Prof Zhang is a chief editor, an associate editor, or an editorial board member in 10 known journals on Climate and Environmental Science.

Nabil Khélifi:

Nabil Khélifi undertook fellowships at the System for Analysis, Research and Training (START) in 2005 and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), as part of his Ph.D. studies in Marine Geosciences at the University of Kiel in Germany (2006 to 2010).  □ After his Ph.D., he received a research grant from the German Science Foundation (DFG) to conduct research projects at the GEOMAR Ocean Research Centre in Kiel on oceanography and climate reconstructions in the North Atlantic and the Mediterranean (2010 to 2013). His research findings have been presented at international conferences and published in esteemed journals.  □ From 2009 to 2013, he co-organized with his Kiel colleagues two workshops on the Pliocene climate at the University of Bordeaux, France (2009), and the University of Bristol, UK (2013), funded by the European Science Foundation (ESF). In late 2013, he received the Swiss Government Excellence Scholarship to pursue my postdoctoral research career.

Attila Ciner:

After graduating from the Middle East Technical University in Ankara (1985), he obtained his M.Sc. degree at the University of Toledo, USA (1988), and his Ph.D. at the University of Strasbourg, France (1992). He works on the tectono-sedimentary evolution of basins and Quaternary depositional systems such as moraines, fluvial terraces, alluvial fans, and deltas. He uses cosmogenic nuclides to date these deposits. He primarily focuses on the glacial deposits and landscapes and tries to understand paleoclimatic and paleoenvironmental changes since the Last Glacial Maximum. Lastly, he was part of the Turkish Antarctic Expedition. He is the editor-in-chief of Mediterranean Geoscience Reviews and a chief editor of Arabian J. of Geosciences, both published by Springer. He has published more than 100 peer-reviewed articles and chapters.
