About the presenter
Niels Crosley Munksgaard earned his pH.D in Geology and Geochemistry from the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. After working as a North Sea oil-field geologist for a few years he took up a position at Macquarie University in Sydney in charge of a geochemical laboratory and conducted geological research in Antarctica. In 1990 Niels moved to the Northern Territory University (now Charles Darwin University) and helped establish the Environmental Chemistry and Microbiology Unit (ECMU). Niels’s research is focused on the role of metal and nutrient pollutants associated with mining and urban development in coastal and marine environments of Northern Australia. This work has involved using a wide range of advanced analytical techniques such as isotope techniques for tracing pollutant sources. Niels is also working in collaboration with James Cook University to developing world-first field stable isotope instruments capable of performing high resolution measurements in time and space.
