Environmental Forensics: What is it? Where did it come from? And is it mine?
November 5, 2019

Forensics methods and approaches can resolve questions on liability, timing, fate and transport, and allocation.

Questions about the sources of chemicals in the environment can be addressed through forensic methods. Integral scientists Andrew Nicholson, Ph.D., and Dreas Nielsen will teach an environmental forensics course as part of the certification requirements for licensed site remediation professionals at the EcoComplex in Bordentown, New Jersey, on November 5, 2019.

Sponsored by Montclair State University and Continuing Professional Educational Services, the course is designed for environmental professionals who are seeking an introduction to environmental forensics methods with an emphasis on real world applications. The course is structured around methods that are applicable to groundwater, stormwater, sediment, and soil.

Dr. Nicholson is a geochemist with 25 years of experience assessing environmental impacts and chemical fate at industrial facilities and mining sites. Mr. Nielsen has 34 years of experience, specializing in the quantitative analysis of environmental data. His site-specific experience in environmental forensics covers a broad range of contaminants, media, transport pathways, and exposures.
