A University of Iowa faculty member is researching how nuclear waste moves in environmental systems

Tori Forbes specifically studies uranium, a byproduct of nuclear fuel, and how it interacts in natural waters. The team will soon study at neptunium as well.

By better understanding how uranium and other nuclear chemicals react in the natural environment, new processes can be established to remove these chemicals safely and effectively.
