Valentyn Kyrylovych Khilchevskyi (Ukrainian: Валентин Кирилович Хільчевський) (born December 23, 1953 ) - Ukrainian hydrologist, hydrochemistry, Head of Hydrology and hydroecology Department of Geography Department of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, Doctor of Geographical Sciences, Professor


He was born December 23, 1953 in the village Khotiv in Kyiv-Sviatoshynsky district of Kyiv region of Ukraine.

He graduated in 1976 at the Faculty of Geography of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv and became a specialist in hydrology and hydrochemistry.

During the period of 1976-1988 he worked in the research laboratory of hydrochemistry within the Faculty of Geography of Kyiv University, and led some research expeditions to water objects of Ukraine. In the 1984 he became a candidate of geographical sciences (PhD).

In 1988-1989 he held academic training and lectured at the University of Bucharest (Romania).

In 1989 he became an Associate Professor, in 1996 - Doctor of Geographical Sciences, in 1997 – Professor of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv.

Since 2000 Valentyn Khilchevskyi is a Head of the Hydrology and Hydrochemistry Department of the Faculty of Geography.

In 2002, on his initiative this Department was renamed into the Department of Hydrology and Hydroecology.

Scientific advances

Valentyn Khilchevskyi has completed researches on the next scientific issues:

theoretical foundations of the chemical composition of surface waters;

problems of hydrochemistry of regional basin systems in Ukraine;

hydrochemistry of agriculture;

the quality of water sources in Ukraine.

He took part in the following expeditions to Azov and Black Seas, to Shatsky lakes, to basins of major rivers of Ukraine (the Dnieper, the Danube, and the Southern Bug), to the cooling ponds of Ukrainian nuclear power plants and of Smolensk NPP (Russia), to the rivers of Southern Carpathians and the Transylvanian Plateau (Romania).

He founded the scientific journal "Hydrology, hydrochemistry and hydroecology" and is its editor (since 2000).

Valentyn Khilchevskyi is the author of over 240 scientific papers, including more than 30 books (16 monographs, 15 textbooks and manuals).

He is the co-author of hydrological maps in "The hydrochemical Atlas of USSR" (Moscow, 1990) and "The National Atlas of Ukraine" (Kyiv, 2007).
