How Geologists Help Solve Crimes

Free. Registration Required

What is forensic geology and how can soil found on a shoe help to solve a crime? How has geology helped to solve several high profile criminal cases in the UK and internationally?
A series of interactive talks reveal how real forensic geologists think. An interactive workshop will help to show how an understanding of rocks, soil and the environment can assist in unravelling crime.
Supported by the Northern Ireland Regional Group of the Geological Society of London and the International Union of Geological Sciences Initiative on Forensic Geology (IUGS IFG).
