NORMS with Amy MacIntosh
Dr Catherine Ball talked with Amy MacIntosh, PhD candidate from Macquarie University, on her collaboration research project with Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) on the impact of normally occurs radioactive materials (NORMS) on Australian marine fauna.
