Exponent Presenting at the International Network of Environmental Forensics Conference


August 4, 2009

Exponent will be presenting at the International Network of Environmental Forensics Conference (INEF), August 31st to September 2nd, 2009, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) will publish manuscripts submitted to the conference for publication in a book available in early 2010. INEF was founded to provide a forum for scientists, environmental consultants, regulators, and attorneys to share information regarding the use of environmental forensics. Environmental forensics is the use of scientific techniques to identify the source, age and timing of a contaminant into the environment.

Exponent presenters are listed below. The full conference program and more information can be found here.
