Environmental forensics deals with questions such as: Whose hazardous waste is it? When was it placed in its present location? How did it happen? How much have people and the environment been exposed? How should liabilaty be allocated? The third edition of INTRODUCTION TO ENVIRONMENTAL FORENSICS will provide the most current coverage of issues and techniques crucial to forensic investigations of environmental disasters. It will show the evolution of the field, including topics such as chemical fingerprinting of hydrocarbons and PCBs, forensic air dispersion modeling analysis, and soil and groundwater modeling. Written by an international group of scientific specialists in order to cover this broad and important field most fully, the new volume will rely on reader feedback to focus on the most important areas for environmental professionals. INTRODUCTION TO ENVIRONMENTAL FORENSICS, third edition will be of interest to consultants, regulators, attorneys, or others whose practice involves identifying sources of pollution and allocating responsibility among multiple parties.
