Atmospheric Physicist

Role at ANSTO

Scott is a Research Scientist in the Isotopes in Climate Change and Atmospheric Systems Project within the Institute for Environmental Research. He is primarily involved in developing, deploying and operating ground-based and airborne detectors for the monitoring of atmospheric Radon-222 (radon) and radon emanation. His research interests involve using radon as a tracer of atmospheric transport and mixing and investigating the use of such datasets for the evaluation of weather and climate models.
