9780123695222: Introduction to Environmental Forensics, Second Edition

One million people a month die from lack of clean water and sanitation, and millions more die every year from various forms of industrial pollution. Environmental forensics is the application of scientific techniques for the purpose of identifying the source and age of a contaminant, and is crucial to pinpointing the cause of these millions of deaths. Over the past several years, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has imposed regulations that warrant the utilization of environmental forensic experts to ensure that companies are complying with environmental standards. As a result, this field has been expanding as a course of study in academia, government, and commercial markets - both in the United States and abroad. The second edition of Introduction to Environmental Forensics is an essential addition to the current literature on the subject.

It outlines techniques for identifying the source of a contaminant release, when the release occurred, and the extent of human exposure. Written by leading experts in environmental investigations, the text provides detailed information on chemical "fingerprinting" techniques applicable to ground water, soils, sediments, and air, plus an in-depth look at petroleum hydrocarbons.

* Co-edited by one of the experts from the Civil Action case in Woburn, MA
* Provides essential information about identifying environmental contaminants responsible for millions of deaths per year
* Contains the latest information and coverage of issues crucial to both forensics investigators and environmental scientists

Product Description:

Introduction to Environmental Forensics helps readers unravel the complexities of environmental pollution cases. It outlines techniques for identifying the source of a contaminant release, when the release occurred, and the extent of human exposure. Written by leading experts in environmental investigations, the text provides detailed information on chemical "fingerprinting" techniques applicable to ground water, soils, sediments, and air, plus an in-depth look at petroleum hydrocarbons.

It gives the environmental scientist, engineer, and legal specialist a complete toolbox for conducting forensic investigations. It demonstrates the range of scientific analyses that are available to answer questions of environmental liability and support a legal argument, and provides several examples and case studies to illustrate how these methods are applied.

This is a textbook that would prove useful to a range of disciplines, including environmental scientists involved in water and air pollution, contaminated land and geographical information systems; and archaeologists, hydrochemists and geochemists interested in dating sources of pollution.

* Co-edited by one of the experts from the Civil Action case in Woburn, MA
