Cleaning Up a Catastrophe – Professor Peter H. Santschi, Texas A&M University

Sep 1, 2017earth and environment, health and medicine, physical sciences

Professor Peter Santschi and his team at Texas A&M University are dedicated to investigating the consequences of the release of radioactive substances into the environment. Incorrect storage of nuclear waste or power plant accidents can cause radioactive material to spread away from the source in the environment, contaminating the surrounding ecosystem with a radioactive potency that can persist for centuries. Professor Santschi and his colleagues perform important work by studying the mobility of these radioactive elements within the environment, providing necessary information for assessing the environmental and human risk posed by these contaminants.
