ENVIRONMENTAL FORENSICS & EXPERT WITNESS SERVICES
“Environmental forensics is the systematic and scientific evaluation of physical, chemical and historical information for the purpose of developing defensible scientific and legal conclusions regarding the source or age of a contaminant release into the environment.”
R.D. Morrison (2013) Overview, Analysis, and Interpretation of Environmental Forensic Evidence. Encyclopedia of Forensic Sciences (Second Edition).
Environmental Geology & Geotechnical Consultants Ltd. offer environmental forensic services for identifying the origins of soil, surface water and groundwater contaminants.
We have extensive experience of applying analytical chemical techniques to environmental contamination (see also PUBLICATIONS) as well as in the use of a wide range of statistical and graphical methods for determining contaminant profiles and sources. We also offer environmental modelling capabilities for determination of likely environmental fate and transport of contaminants resulting from pollution of water bodies and soils.
Our Expert Witness services are informed by a variety of experience working within the legal system and with the application of environmental data and legislation to specific cases. All legal services are conducted strictly in accordance with both our science-led ethos and national guidelines.
