Atlas of Lebanon

Authors and Contributions

Texte intégral

1The Atlas is a collaborative effort between the NCRS-Lebanon and the research team Environnement Ville Société (EVS/CNRS at the University of Lyon). The project was funded by the Lebanese section of UNESCO and the French-Lebanese CEDRE programme. The project has been coordinated by Ghaleb Faour and Mouin Hamzé for the NCSR-Lebanon, and by Éric Verdeil for EVS.

2Éric Verdeil et Ghaleb Faour were the scientific editors. Sébastien Velut contributed to the scientific edition of the 2007 version of the Atlas, parts of which are integrated in this version.

3Claire Gillette did the mapping and data structuring when she was intern at the NCRS-NSCR. She also coordinated part 5, selected the data and wrote the texts of this section. For this English edition, she also translated and adapted the texts and the maps.

4Jihad Farah, Professor at the Lebanese University, coordinated part 7 on municipalities and planning. The CERDA team gathered the data from various administrative origins and from their own surveys.

5The CERDA team included several young Lebanese researchers : Vicken Ashkarian, Hisham Ashkar, Christine Moujahed, Khaled Ghoch, Amanie Majed, Emilio Gemayel, Dima Raydan, Wassim Abdelsater and Bouchra Tohme.

6The National Center for Remote Sensing (NCRS) provided its georeferenced databases, including basic geographic data (administrative limits, roads, etc.) and diverse thematic series.

7Most data used in part 4 and 5 have been generated and interpreted by the reasearchers of the NCRS, specifically Ghaleb Faour for urbanization and land use, Amin Shaaban for climate change and Chadi Abdallah on flooding hazards, mass land movements and forest fires.

8This Atlas also highly benefitted from the contributions of researchers such as Walid Bakhos, Fabrice Balanche, Marie Bonte and Bruno Dewailly.

9Each double-page is signed by its authors, except the one on seismic risk, which is the collective achievement of the research team involved in the project ANR Libris, which gathers researchers
