14th Australasian Environmental Isotope Conference

26-28 March | Wellington

New Zealand has an enviable world leading reputation in nuclear science from Sir Ernest Rutherford’s splitting of the atom to Dr Athol Rafter, the founder of the world’s oldest continuously operating radiocarbon laboratory at GNS Science and one of the pioneers in further developing the radiocarbon processing technique and its early application to CO2 emissions in the 1950’s.

AEIC2018 will be held in a stimulating central Wellington environment where attendees will be able to engage on a wide variety of environmental applications of isotopes whilst enjoying the buzz of the city and harbour. Perhaps this pioneering spirit of our predecessors will also be found by some?

A full 3-day programme is currently being built with an inspiring line-up of internationally recognised speakers.

GNS Science is a Government owned earth sciences research Institute and one of our core purposes is to utilise isotopic techniques to benefit New Zealand. One of the areas we use isotopes is to consider and address global and national scale environmental issues and impacts, to help us inform and strategically position New Zealand.

Critical Dates:
