Environmental forensics is the application of scientific techniques for the purpose
of identifying the source and age of a contaminant. Over the past several years, this study has been
as a course of study in academia, government and commercial markets. The US Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA) are among the governmental agencies that utilize the study of environmental
forensics to ensure national security and to ensure that companies are complying with standards. Even
the International Network for Environmental Compliance and Enforcement (INECE), a group s
upported by the European Commission and the World Bank, utilizes the study of environmental
forensics as it applies to terror threats.
This title is a hand-on guide for environmental scientists, engineers, consultants and industrial
scientists to identify the origin and age of a contaminant in the environment and the issues involved
in the process. An expansion of the authors' first title with Academic Press, Introduction to Environmental
Forensics, this is a state-of-the-art reference for those exploring the scientific techniques available.
Of interest to Environmental engineers, geologists, hydrologists, professionals in public health,
ecology, soil science, and agronomy, environmental consultants, county, city, state and federal
