2006:52: Millette, Brown

Proceedings of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, Annual Meeting, Feb. 20-24

Abstract:

After attending this presentation, attendees will have an understanding of how the microscopical analysis of dust particles can be used to determine the source of contamination caused by mass disasters: natural and man-made.

This presentation will impact the forensic community and/or humanity by showing the audience that the forensic investigation of trace evidence using various types of microscopes is being extended into the broader fields of engineering and environmental investigations. Decisions involving millions of dollars and potential health risk assessments are being made on the basis of forensic microscopical techniques.
