RED FIRE - BLOG
The National Environment Research Council (NERC) has awarded an urgency grant for the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH) to lead a team studying the effects of a major fire which affected an area known as the ‘Red Forest’ near Chernobyl.
RED FIRE is addressing two scientific hypotheses:
- The fire will have increased the mobility of radionuclides in the Red Forest
- Radiation will impact on ecosystem recovery from the effects of the forest fire
For further details see the CEH blog
