An Introduction to Forensic Geoscience, Paperback / softback Book

An Introduction to Forensic Geoscience Paperback / softback

Description

An Introduction to Forensic Geoscience provides fundamental training in geoscience as developed through the lens of its forensic applications.

It incorporates a range of topics including geophysical methods of grave detection, the mineralogy of art, identification of microfossils, and comparison of soil trace evidence samples.

Each topic is introduced using core concepts that are developed with increasing complexity in order to give readers an understanding of the underlying scientific principles involved and a taste of the wide range of possible forensic uses.

A variety of detailed reference tables have been compiled for the text and each chapter contains lists of references to applicable textbooks and journal articles.

Examples of real criminal cases are also presented in each chapter to make the connections between theory and real world application.

The goal of this book is to give readers a familiarity with the wide range of ways in which geoscience principles and geological materials can be utilized forensically.
