Abstract: Lovelock [1] introduced the term ‘geophysiology’ to describe the holistic study of the Earth systems. By analogy with medicine, and the corresponding field of nuclear medicine, ‘nuclear geophysiology’ describes the application of nuclear techniques to Earth system science. Injections of radioisotopes into the Earth's systems occur naturally and continuously, while artificial radionuclides have been injected at times as a result of human activities. Here, we provide some examples of Australian investigations into the physiology of the Earth derived from the study of these isotopes.
