Data collected as part of the NERC funded Radioactivity and the Environment (RATE), Long-lived Radionuclides in the Surface Environment (Lo-RISE), research consortium.This data comes from the terrestrial workstream group based at the University of Manchester. The data consists of radionuclide measurements of environmental and biological samples including uranium (238), thorium (232) and radium (226), and soil subsurface and surface biota bioprospecting (plants and AM fungi). The data from this first dataset has been published in the following publication: Davies et al. (2018) Multiple environmental factors influence 238U, 232Th and 226Ra bioaccumulation in arbuscular mycorrhizal-associated plants. Science of the Total Environment 640-641:921-934.
