Guest lecture: The use of AMS within environmental sciences/environmental radioactivity at ANU

Title of the lecture: The use of AMS within environmental sciences/environmental radioactivity at ANUTime: Monday June 25th at 10:15 – 11:00Place: NMBU, Campus Ås, Soil Building, Lecture Hall JmU111Lecturer: Prof Keith Fifield, Australian National University (ANU)

Keith Fifield is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Nuclear Physics at the ANU, and a former Director of the Department’s Heavy Ion Accelerator Facility.

For many years, he has been developing and applying accelerator mass spectrometry with the 15 million volt accelerator at the ANU. This facility, which is shared with nuclear physics and materials science, is the largest in the world that performs routine AMS measurements. Many of the applications are in the realm of environmental science, and range from tracing nuclear discharges, through hydrology to landscape evolution.
