Environmental Forensics provides case study examples of environmental trial exhibits. Misused techniques are covered which can bias the scie ntific validity of a trial exhibit such as scale exaggeration, use of statistical manipulation, data contouring, and selective presentation. Detailed information is provided for identifying and interpreting th ose portions of environmental reports that are "target rich" sources o f scientific biases. These include the identification of false positiv e, false negative and the intentional manipulation of environmental da ta that occurs primarily in the sample collection process.

Editorial Reviews

Provides a working reference for practicing environmental attorneys and environmental consultants. Topics and examples selected are common denominator issues in the field. Whenever possible, mathematical and chemical discussions are relegated to appendices. Overviews information on chlorinated solvents and petroleum hydrocarbons, describes forensic tools, and gives information on how to identify biased environmental data. Also gives suggestions on evaluation of contaminant transport models, and describes techniques for forensically evaluating trial exhibits and animations. Annotation c.
