Aim

Give a broad information about ionizing radiation in our environment



  • Give information about naturally occurring radiation sources

  • Give information about man-made radionuclides in the environment

  • Give information about how radionuclides are transported in the ecological system

  • Give information about radioanalytical methods, with focus on environmental measurements

  • Teach practical radioanalytical chemistry, with focus on environmental samples

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

- Have a broad understanding of ionizing radiation in our environment

- Have understanding of naturally occurring radiation sources

- Have understanding of man-made radionuclides in the environment

- Have understanding of how radionuclides are transported in the ecological system

- Have understanding of radioanalytical methods, with focus on environmental measurements

- Be able to perform practical radioanalytical chemistry, with focus on environmental samples

Content

Natural and man-made radioactivity, ionizing radiation in our environment, transport of radionuclides in the ecological system, radioanalytical chemistry, radiochemical measurements.

Organisation

Lectures, laboratory project and exercises.

Literature

To be announced.

Examination

Written exam. The laboratory project and exercises have to be passed to obtain a final grading.
