Since the late 1980's we have been involved in a range of work
on the environmental transfer of trace contaminants such as radionuclides
and heavy metals.
We have undertaken work on soil bioavailability of contaminants,
soil-plant transfer and plant to animal transfer.
In the case of radionuclides some of this work has evolved into
the development of spatial models for the transfer of contaminants
to the foodchain.
More recently we have undertaken work on the development and application
of models to support remediation of contaminated land.
We also have a range of work on the development of models for ecosystem
processes (e.g. biogeochemical cycling of nitrogen; dynamics of
In parallel with the above work we are also been involved in the
development of methods (and in some cases software) relevant to
These pages provide information about the range of environmental
modelling work within the Environmental Science Group at the University
of Nottingham. Some of our closely related field and experimental
work is also included.
Material is organised under the links on the grey index bar.
The Environmental Science Group is part of the
