Andrew Hursthouse


Professor of Environmental Geochemistry, Assistant Dean for Research & Enterprise, School of Computing, Engineering & Physical Sciences, University of the West of Scotland.

Teaching and research focused on analytical and environmental geochemistry of trace elements, organic and inorganic species and their cycling under surface and sedimentary conditions.

Using a wide and complementary range of analytical (chemical) techniques to investigate surface distribution and process transport mechanisms and contamination problems, including chemical analysis methods for direct determination of elemental speciation and trace organic compounds. We have identified and defined factors controlling migration of a number of potentially toxic elements and molecules in terrestrial and marine ecosystems.

These have applications in the environmental impact of waste discharges to air, land and water bodies and their implication for industry and public health. I retain strong interests in environmental radioactivity, particularly of the actinides.

Worked in advisory capacity for EU and UK policy and government departments on environmental quality; regular consultant/contractor for industry in fields of waste and environmental management.

Specialties: Contaminated Land, Air Quality Management, Aquatic Contamination & Monitoring, Environmental Geochemistry & Health, Environmental Analytical Chemistry, Waste & Environmental Management, science-policy
