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.
