A multi-institutional environmental radioactivity research centre (ARC LIEF project administered by Edith Cowan University) (2017–2018)

The project aims to establish a new Environmental Radioactivity Research Centre, equipped with ultra-low background and high-resolution alpha and gamma spectrometry systems, radon detectors and radium delayed coincidence counters. The centre will address a critical demand in Australia for precise analysis of a large suite of natural and artificial radionuclides, which will be used as tracers and chronological tools to investigate key questions in oceanography and the mining and energy, archaeological, agricultural, and forestry sectors. The facility will substantially increase expertise and training in radionuclides in Australia, and promote high-level research collaborations and outputs of both national and international significance.
