University of Manchester academics at international conference on geographic chemicals
Date:7/8/2010

The 'Geographic Chemicals in Groundwaters and Soils' event will showcase the work of researchers in the AquaTRAIN Marie Curie Research Training Network.

This network, coordinated by The University of Manchester's Professor David Polys, aims to highlight the environmental effect including the effect on human health of chemicals of natural origin in groundwater and soils.

Held today and tomorrow at the Bureau de Recherches Gologiques et Minires (BRGM), a major geoscience centre in Orleans, France, the conference will have a number of important speakers from universities and research institutions all over the world.

There is a widespread perception that all detrimental chemicals in the environment are of anthropogenic origin caused by human activities such as chemical industries, burning of fossil fuels, mining or the production and application of agrochemicals.

But significant detrimental health outcomes are arising across the globe because of exposure to geogenic chemicals.

Arsenic is the most significant of these in terms of tens of millions of people exposed, resulting in millions suffering ill-health and thousands of premature deaths each year.

Professor Polya, from the School of Earth, Atmospheric & Environmental Sciences, said: "Effective development and implementation of environment policy requires well-trained scientists, engineers and social scientists who have a substantive understanding of the many relevant disciplines.

"Such training at postgraduate level has been the main aim of the AquaTRAIN MRTN".

AquaTRAIN researchers have already made important advances in detecting arsenic exposure in humans from eating rice and biogeochemical modeling of the behaviour of arsenic in soils.

The work of former University of Manchester Environmental Science graduate, Julia Leventon (pictured), has highlighted how many of the difficulties around the effective formulation of govern
