Environmental Radioactivity Research Centre

The Liverpool University Environmental Radioactivity Research Centre (ERRC) is concerned with a wide range of problems in environmental radioactivity.

Research themes include:

  • Radiometric dating of lake, marine and coastal sediments and peat cores
  • Modelling the transfer of radionuclides through catchment/lake systems
  • Reconstruction of historical levels of environmental pollution from sediment records
  • Studies of catchment erosion
  • Studies of Chernobyl fallout
  • Monitoring of radioactive discharges
  • Uranium series dating
  • Modelling the migration of natural radionuclides in granite
