Forensic Consulting

The combination of organic and inorganic components present in soils near your home enable them to provide trace evidence crucial in determining the duration of a fuel oil release. We have utilized forensic analysis in cases where insurance coverage is uncertain. Once samples are collected, they are analyzed for their bulk color, particle size distribution, pH, bulk chemistry, mineralogy, mineral chemistry, geochemistry, mineral surface texture and other criteria. The data is carefully considered and a report is issued based on the results. This report includes sample certification, laboratory report, and our analysis of the findings, including detailed age-dating to indicate how long the release has been in-progress.
