Environmental forensics is a multidisciplinary field with the goal of understanding how and when contamination occurred as well as who is responsible for the pollution. Environmental forensics investigations may involve identifying and apportioning responsibility among multiple parties, age-dating releases and/or determining exactly how a release occurred with reference to insurance or other contractual issues. This one-day program will address the following age-dating methods: Site History, Fingerprinting, Hydrology, Isotopes, Weathering and Dendroecology.
