First week after short New Year holidays, co-workers from the Department of Environmental Sciences, dr. Jože Kotnik, dr. Igor Živković, and Jan Gačnik performed sampling and measurement of different mercury fractions in flue gases of the Cement Plant Anhovo. Work was conducted within planned field samplings of the MercOx project.
He is professor, head of laboratory as well as director of the institute at Derzhavin Tambov State University, Tambov, Russia and he is also working at the National University of Science and Technology in Moscow. He is interested in nanotoxicology, plant nanobiotechnology, antibacterial nanomaterials, carbon nanomaterials and bioaccumulation of nanoparticles.
Check out an IJS video that nicely reminds us of why we do what we do and why our work is so important and fascinating.
The news related to the research on authenticity and traceability of food taking truffles as an example was published on IAEA news website.
The newest study of the variation of U isotope ratios in water and sediments in the karst aquifer of Krka River in Croatia showed that U isotopes are identifiers of authigenic carbonate and can be used for quantification of terrestrial CO2 sinks related to carbonate weathering.
This month, a large three-year research project on the transfer of mercury from Idrija through the Soča river to the Gulf of Trieste began, led by our head of the department, Prof. Dr. Milena Horvat.
August 6, 2021 marks the first anniversary of death of our dear friend Dr. Hirokatsu Akagi well known for his outstanding contributions in scientific research, mentoring, public outreach, and impact on mercury policy and management.
The Summer School is organized as part of the H2020 VIDIS project, and it will showcase the most recent research and development activities related to air quality and atmospheric aerosols. VIDIS summer school aims to present innovative methods and tools in air quality and atmospheric aerosols monitoring, modelling and management. The summer school will provide participants with both theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience in relation to low-cost PM sensors, and other sensing technologies for air quality management and control.
Congratulations to all nominees! The award ceremony, which will be traditionally co-organized together with the Public Agency for Research of the Republic of Slovenia (ARRS), will take place on 19 May 2022 from 18:00 to 19:00 in the Hall of prof. dr. Janez Hribar at the Biotechnical Faculty of the University of Ljubljana.
The Department of Environmental Sciences participated in this year's Open Day event of the Jožef Stefan Institute which took place live on Saturday, 26.3.2022.
This Special Issue addresses advances in methods, applications, and hydrological process interpretations using stable and radioactive water isotopes in the whole water cycle.
