Return To The Containment 2001 Proceedings

William C. Burnett, Ph.D., Director: Environmental Radioactivity Measurement Facility
Dr. Burnett's research focuses on the measurement and description of both natural (uranium/thorium decay series) and artificial radionuclides in the environment.  He specializes in the development of new separation techniques to isolate actinide elements from environmental matrices such as seawater, marine sediments, and soils.  A major area of research over the past several years has been the use of natural radon-222 as a tracer of groundwater flow into coastal and lake waters.

Dr. Burnett is currently Chair of an international working group on submarine groundwater discharge sponsored by the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) and the Land-Ocean Interaction in the Coastal Zone (LOICZ) project of the International Geophysical and Biophysical Program (IGBP).  He is also a Professor of Oceanography at Florida State University and serves as Senior Consultant for Radiochemistry at General Engineering Laboratories (Charleston, SC).
