Dr Andrew Smith
| Brief Description
|Andrew commenced work at ANSTO in 1989 on the then newly-acquired tandem accelerator, ANTARES. He is currently a Physicist in the Accelerator Mass Spectrometry team in ANSTO's Institute for Environmental Research.
|His principal involvement in developing the AMS facility has been with the multi-sample ion source, the isotope cycling system and with ion beam optics. Since 1999 Andrew has been working on applications of long-lived radionuclides in
|polar ice sheets as tracers and chronometers and in the development of ANSTO's capability to measure 14C in ultra-small carbon samples. Andrew is currently leading 'Radiocarbon signatures of greenhouse gases' in the
|'Cosmogenic Climate Archives of the Southern Hemisphere' project. Andrew lead an expedition to Law Dome, Antarctica, in 2005 and retrieved a 260 m ice core, plus other snow and ice samples, principally for global climate change studies.
