Envrionmental geochemistry

Motto of my research:
"Describe universe on two pages and make at least two examples"
by my favorite geochemist Steve Norton, Univeristy of Maine

My research has been focused before all on various environmental gechemical problems. My research begun with geochemistry of waters with respect to toxic metals such as  Be, Al and Pb. Envrionmetal theme I came across has been the acidification, its effects on environment and connected problems - the Czech Republic belongs to the areas with the greatest damage to the environment by this phenomenon. Recent topics of my research are dynamics of mercury (Hg) in the environment, geochemical research of the dust materials and redox processes in forest soils. Great deal of my research including my masters and doctoral thesis has been connected to the Lesni potok catchment

I am using the results of my geochemical research within teaching of subject "Heavy Metals in the Environment" at the Charles University, Prague.
