Atoms are everywhere. Everything we touch, see, taste and smell is made up of atoms. Likewise isotopes, which are simply atoms with a different number of neutrons, are also everywhere. ANSTO’s environmental researchers use a wide variety of isotopes, including some that are radioactive, to understand how environmental systems - water, earth, air, plants and animals - function and interact, and the impact that humans are having on the environment. Our research enables industry and policy makers to make informed decisions about this important resource and ultimately improve our world.
