Course Description:

Environmental forensics is the systematic and scientific evaluation of environmental data, using various disciplines, for the purpose of developing defensible scientific and legal conclusions regarding the source, age and history of chemical pollutants released into the environment.

This course will introduce participants to the principles of environmental forensic science and survey the major applications and techniques for organic chemicals.  In particular, you will learn about the sources, composition, transport, and fate of selected chemicals in the environment; forensic sampling and analysis techniques; and data analysis and presentation.

These concepts will be illustrated with several mini-case studies which have been prepared from the field of environmental forensic science.
