About this book

Offers an overview of environmental forensics and related topics. The authors explore topics including source identification issues, microbial techniques, metal contamination and methods of assigning liability, the use of isotopes to detemine sources, oil chemistry and key compound ID, and also discuss the emerging role of environmental forensics in groundwater pollution.

...this is a very useful book which gives an excellent position statement on the application of the techniques and of their limitations in environmental forensics. A required purchase, I am sure, for all institutional libraries where these sorts of activities take place. -- Chemistry World, Future Issue, Paul Kneller Chemistry World
