Discover the composition of soil with ECU’s School of Natural Sciences

Monday, 11 October 2010


ECU’s School of Natural Sciences (SONS) is hosting a free seminar, entitled ‘Heavy Metal Movements in Soils and Sediments’ as part of the School of Natural Sciences Free Seminar Series, which aims to provide an insight into a variety of science-based topics.

The presentation, delivered by ECU Post-Doctorate Research Fellow Dr Lu Zhao, discusses how samples collected from harbours and lakes in Hong Kong and China were analysed for lead and other metal content.

The presentation will highlight the findings from the research, and also what the results say about mining in China.

Promotions Officer from the School of Natural Sciences, Ms Nardia Bordas, believes the talks are a fantastic opportunity to learn from leading science experts.

“This presentation will provide an interesting perspective on heavy metals in the environment - a topic many Western Australians have been talking about for a long time.”

The seminar will be followed by light refreshments at the Malting and Education Centre, where guests can taste ECU’s very own beer.
