Environmental Forensics provides a forum for scientific investigations that address environmental contamination which is subject to law court, arbitration, public debate, or formal argumentation and is subject to the basic science that serves as underpinnings to those activities. Journal subject matter encompasses all aspects of contamination within the environmental media of air, water, soil and biota. The journal is an international, quarterly, peer-reviewed publication offering scientific studies that explore source, fate, transport, and human health and ecological effects of environmental contamination. Contamination is delineated in terms of chemical characterization, biological influence, responsible parties and legal consequences. Manuscripts dealing with a wide range of environmental issues and how they relate to the characterization and tracking of contamination will be accepted. Journal focus is on scientific and technical information, data, and critical analysis in the following areas;

  • Analytical Chemistry, including analytical techniques that provide definitive, quality results for analyses that are conducted to answer litigious environmental contamination questions
  • Geochemistry, including chemistry and physics of soil, water and air with respect to potential interactions with contamination
  • Atmospheric Chemistry, including occurrence, alteration, fate, transport and modeling of chemicals in the atmosphere
  • Microbiology, including all aspects of microbe-related transformation and alteration of contamination constituents
  • Environmental Fate Assessment, including partitioning and transformation of contaminant components between and within environmental media
  • Environmental Transport Assessment, including geologic, hydrogeologic, oceanographic and meteorologic controls on the migration or movement of contamination
  • Integrated controls on the migration or movement of contamination
  • Integrated Case Studies, employing environmental fate techniques described herein
  • Legal Considerations, including strategic considerations for environmental fate in litigation and arbitration, and regulatory statutes and actions
