Trace Element Abundance & Human Epidemiology: the Tellus Case Study

By Amy Barsby

Abstract

This project aims to explore the spatial correlation between selected trace element abundances in soil and surface waters as provided by the Tellus Project and spatial disease patterns in Northern Ireland (anonymised data provided by Northern Ireland Cancer Registry). Northern Ireland and Tellus are an important test case, as Northern Ireland’s complex geology is a microcosm for that encountered across the UK and Ireland, thus any correlations found may have implications outside of Northern Ireland
