Environmental Forensics: A Glossary of Terms contains over 3,500 definitions and 1,500 acronyms. Compiled from common technical terms encountered in millions of pages of environmental reports over the past 15 years, this book contains regulatory phrases and acronyms; geologic, toxicological, laboratory, and chemical terms; as well as words and phrases unique to environmental forensics.
The Glossary clarifies terms with multiple meanings, allows you to perform a more expedient and comprehensive review of an environmental report, and helps in deciphering works encountered during expert witness testimony at deposition and trial. Practicing environmental attorneys and environmental consultants/engineers will find this book a useful tool in correspondence, interrogatories, court filings and pleadings, and communication with environmental consultants and regulators.
"The definitions are accurate and concise … no single volume compares to this glossary of an emerging science."
