are ubiquitous in the environment and in living things. They can be essential
or toxic, and can occur in traces in biota and environmental samples. For the
determination of trace levels of elements, advanced analytical methods can be
used, based on atomic spectrometry. This course will provide in-depth knowledge
of atomic emission, absorption and fluorescence spectroscopies, and mass
spectrometry, featuring qualitative and quantitative aspects. Chromatography,
combined with atomic spectrometry, is featured for trace element speciation,
which allows distinguishing different metal compounds with varying toxicity. The
course will contain lectures, tutorials and invited lectures by experts in the
