  • Analyze and evaluate soil and water
  • Identify sources of soil and water impacts
  • Determine the time/date when incidents originated

Forensic geology can provide easily overlooked evidence in both civil and criminal litigation.  It may be as simple as verifying the shape of an excavation prior to collapse, or it may be somewhat more complex, such as correlating soil at a crime scene with soil on a suspects clothing/alleged weapon, or using a computer model to support a professional opinion.  In any case, GeoForensics, Inc. provides expert assistance in clarifying technical issues before the court and in expediting litigation/settlement.
