SEGH 2010 International Conference and Workshops

Environmental Quality and Human Health

Galway, Ireland, June 27- July 2, 2010



Conference Themes

Main Conference Theme:

          Environmental Quality and Human Health

Alongside the traditional topics in environmental geochemistry of air, water, sediments and soils, we will explore the following pressing issues:


       Biogeochemistry of trace elements, organic pollutants and radio-nuclides

       Medical geology, environmental pollution and public health

       Interpretation using GIS, such as health atlas and geochemical mapping, whilst allowing for uncertainty

       Urban geochemistry, contaminated land and waste management

       Environmental impacts of climate change and human activities: agriculture, industry, transport and pesticides

       Chemicals fate, transport and exposure in environmental extreme events

       Minerals and the environment

       Perception and communication of environmental health risks and social inequality
