Geoscience for forensic services
Forensic geosciences are the application of different disciplines of earth sciences, geology, archeology, physics and chemistry to forensic cases. These disciplines can provide a useful key to understanding the environment in the context of numerous types of crimes, against the person, the environment or property, both in criminal and civil litigations.
Given the nature of numerous criminal dynamics carried out in open areas, the environment, not being closed system, plays a dual role, passive and active. Passive, as it can be the main repository of traces and evidence left by a victim or his aggressor. Active, because it can be protagonist of criminal dynamics, where, for example, it is abused in the design and construction of infrastructures, landfills or architectural artifacts, but also when it leaves trace evidence on clothing and objects.
