Objectives

To enhance readiness and capabilities of societies for optimizing remediation of agricultural areas affected by large-scale nuclear accidents through innovative monitoring, decision-making and prediction techniques.

Specific objectives

To combine experimental studies with field monitoring and modelling for understanding and predicting the role of environmental properties on radiocaesium and radiostrontium transfer in the food chains and dynamics at landscape level in under-explored agro-ecological environments such as under arid, tropical and monsoonal climates.

To customise the remedial options in agriculture to under-explored agro-ecological environments such as under arid, tropical and monsoonal climates and to adapt and develop innovative decision support systems for optimizing remediation of agricultural lands affected by nuclear accidents, based on machine learning and operation research techniques.
