The aim of our research is to increase understanding the behaviour of radionuclides in the atmosphere and terrestrial environment. Our group has been working in Department of Chemistry since early 2000s. Altogether we have almost 50 years' experience in environmental radioactivity, radioecology and atmospheric radioactivity.
Radioecology group consists of Ph.D. Susanna Salminen-Paatero, Ph.D., docent Jussi Paatero, and occasional students. The group has been participating to research projects dealing with radioecology, radioanalytical method development, atmospheric radioactivity, etc. both with Nordic and EU partners. The projects have been funded by foundations, NKS, and EU.
