INDOFERN: New Indicator Organisms for Environmental Radioactivity

Project Details


A Nordic NKS-project (NKS: Nordic Nuclear Safety Research). The objective of the project was to identify new indicator organisms and biomarkers for assessment of environmental radioactivity under normal and emergency situations. Indicator organisms are valuable monitoring objects in emergency situations. Period: 2002-2005. Reports can be found under “NKS Reports” at:
