NIȚĂ Dan Constantin – Scientific researcher III

Fields of interest/specialization: Isotope geochemistry & geochronology, U series dating, Natural radioactivity, (LA)-MC/SF/Q-ICP-MS.

My main research is based on high precision isotopic analysis and uranium series dating with implications in development of new measurement techniques, geochronology, paleoclimatology, mammal evolution, nuclear forensics, etc.; the radioactivity of different natural and anthropic materials from different environments being my secondary area of research.
