Forensic practitioners and academic researchers demonstrate, by their joint contributions, the extent and complexity of soil forensics. This comprehensive guidebook includes: Guidance in the development and presentation of forensic opinions within the litigation process Stand-alone Environmental forensics book of historical research, groundwater contaminant modeling, chemical fingerprinting, toxicology, and Environmental forensics book assessment to environmental litigation Chemical and investigative forensic methods presented within the context of environmental forensic case histories Illustrative problem-solving as an invaluable teaching and learning resource Typical forensic cases grouped to illustrate the three main areas of environmental litigation: minimizing damages to clients, allocating damages between responsible parties, and resolution of insurance-related issues For engineers, scientists, attorneys, government regulators, financial and real estate professionals, and the broad spectrum of environmental consultants, this book is critical for all whose work involves environmental contamination. He has worked for 38 years as an environmental consultant on projects related to soil and groundwater contamination, including site investigations and remediation. New techniques in chemical, physical, biological, ecological and spatial analysis, coupled with informatics, are being applied to reducing areas of search by investigators, site identification, site comparison and measurement for the eventual use as evidence in court.

He has worked for 38 years as an environmental consultant on projects related to soil and groundwater contamination, including Environmental forensics book investigations and remediation. After having finished his PhD Early-Medieval Dorestad, an Archaeo-Petrological Study, he performed betweenin close cooperation with specialists in different Environmental forensics book of science, a variety of archeometric studies in the fields of provenancing stone, ceramicsancient technology iron productiondating geomagnetism, 14C, dendrochronology and geochemical prospection, which has resulted in a high number of papers in international, often peer-reviewed, journals. Aim The Group aims to provide a forum for scientists, environmental consultants, regulators and attorneys to share information regarding the use of environmental forensics. The first section provides an introduction to the forensic process, a historical perspective on pollution, and related laws and insurance issues. Since the first INEF conference held in Qingdao, China insignificant advances in the state of the art in environmental forensics have occurred, especially in the fields of compound specific isotope analysis CSIAbiological and petroleum hydrocarbon pattern recognition and the use of advanced multivariate techniques for interpreting environmental forensics data.

This volume contains authoritative articles by a number Environmental forensics book the leading practitioners across the globe in the environmental forensics field and aims to cover some of the main techniques and areas to which environmental forensics are being applied. Of note in these proceedings is the application of environmental forensic techniques to examine contaminant issues associated with hydrofracking which has received considerable international attention in the past several years. Since he has been a fulltime professor Geo- en Bioarchaeology at the VU and director of the newly established Institute for Geo- and Bioarchaeology. Environmental forensics uses the very best science for the purpose of litigation; think CSI-contamination!

INEF is an organization founded by environmental forensic scientists for the express purpose of sharing and disseminating environmental forensic information to Environmental forensics book international scientific community.

An emerging field of work is the water and soil pollution due to organized serious crime, such as the delibarate dumping in the environment of waste resulting from the production of illicit drugs. Essential Reading The third edition of Introduction to Environmental-Forensics is a state-of-the-art reference for the practicing environmental forensics consultant, regulator, student, academic, and scientist, with topics including compound-specific isotope analysis CSIAadvanced multivariate statistical techniques, surrogate approaches for contaminant source identification and age dating, dendroecology, hydrofracking, releases from underground storage tanks and piping, and contaminant-transport modeling for forensic applications.

His career at Vrije Universiteit Environmental forensics book VU started in where he was appointed, on a part time basis, to the first chair of Archaeometry in the Netherlands. Moreover the necessity is depicted of co-operation Environmental forensics book a condition for any work Environmental forensics book soil forensics between scientists of different disciplines, but no less between scientists and law enforcers.

Aim The Group aims to provide a forum for scientists, environmental consultants, regulators Environmental forensics book attorneys to share information regarding the use of environmental forensics. Coverage ranges from emerging statistical methods to state-of-the-art analytical techniques, such as gas chromatography-combustion-isotope ratio mass spectrometry and polytopic vector analysis.

She specialized in soil Environmental forensics book water pollution, with strong emphasis on microbiology and physical chemistry.

If you would like to find out more please contact the Secretary. Finally, the book explores the environmental forensic process through an extensive body of real case studies in which the authors have participated.

Rather, it presents a section of techniques and then a section of successful cases in Environmental forensics book and somewhat abstracted form. Technology Nonfiction A comprehensive practical guide to environmental forensics With real-world examples and advice on both scientific and legal issues, Practical Environmental Forensics stands on the front line of this new interdisciplinary approach to the environmental litigation process.

This professionally edited book is the third of a series of INEF conference publications chronicling the current state of the art in environmental forensics. The first section provides an introduction to the forensic process, a historical perspective on pollution, and related laws and insurance issues.

In recent years she concentrated on environmental forensics again. She is editor-in-chief of the Environmental Forensics Journal, and has extensive publication experience, including an invention patent, six book chapters, over 70 research and review articles, 12 editorials, and three technical guidelines.

Supported by reviews, case-studies from across the world, and reports of original research, it demonstrates the increasing convergence of a wide range of knowledge. New techniques in chemical, physical, biological, ecological and spatial analysis, coupled with informatics, are being applied to reducing areas of search by investigators, site identification, site comparison and measurement for the eventual use as evidence in court.

Since the initial concept of using soil in forensic investigations was mooted by Conan Doyle in his Sherlock Holmes stories prior to real-world applications, this branch of forensic science has become increasingly sophisticated and broad. Fields of special interest and work are the use of data collections of soil characteristics, the application of recycled materials as fertilizers, care duty for soil and GIS.

She has worked on numerous projects and designed and managed environmental forensics investigations involving compounds of major concern. Free shipping for individuals worldwide Usually dispatched within 3 to 5 business days.

As a result of the topicality and rapid growth of the subject area, is the publication of this book - the 26th volume in the highly acclaimed Issues in Environmental Science and Technology Series.

It therefore involves field analytical studies and both data interpretation and modelling connected with the attribution of pollution events to their causes. This interdisciplinary volume explores the conceptual and practical interplay of soil and geoforensics across the scientific, investigative and legal fields.

It should be of interest to anyone looking for a series of papers that provide insight into where the field of forensic soil science is today and where it might be tomorrow.

In this role she is responsible for project management, business development, litigation support, and independent scientific investigation. As a result is the increasing number of prosecutions of companies who have breached regulations for environmental protection and in civil claims relating to harm caused by excessive pollutant releases to the environment.

Activities INEF is involved with the design and delivery of a number of outreach programs, including conferences and workshops, to interested parties throughout the world.

Recent decades have seen a burgeoning of legislation designed to protect the environment and, as the costs of environmental damage and clean-up are considerable, not only are there prosecutions by regulatory agencies, but the courts are also used as a means of adjudication of civil damage claims relating to environmental causes or environmental degradation.
