Recommended Conferences for Forensic Geophysics

Forensic Geophysics

As per available reports about 10 relevant journals , 5 Conferences,, 125 workshops are presently dedicated exclusively to Forensic Geophysics and about 344 articles are being published on Forensic Geophysics

Forensic geophysics is the study, the search, the localization and the mapping of buried objects or elements beneath the soil or the water, using geophysics tools for legal purposes. There are different geophysical techniques for forensic investigations in which the target are buried and have different dimensions (from weapons or metallic barrels to human burials and bunkers). Geophysical methods have the latent to aid the search and the recovery of these targets because they can non-destructively and rapidly scrutinize large areas where a infer, illegal burial or, in general, a forensic target is hidden in the subsoil. When in the subsurface there is a contrast of physical properties between a target and the material in which it is buried, it is possible to individuate and define precisely the concealing place of the searched target. It is also possible to recognize evidences of human soil occupation or excavation, both recent and older. Forensic geophysics is an evolving technique that is gaining popularity and prestige in law enforcement

OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.

Scope and Importance:

Forensic geophysics is ‘the study of locating and mapping hidden objects or features that are underground or underwater’ (Dupras, 2006). Geophysical methods have the potential to aid the location and recovery of human remains as they can, non-invasively, very rapidly survey extensive areas where a suspected clandestine burial has taken place. Subsequent targeted anomalies could then be investigated using conventional intrusive methods. Early successes in the 1990s, particularly the Fred West case, raised the profile of forensic geophysics, particularly Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), but to-date, geophysics has only been used sporadically and with varied success. There is a significant gap in knowledge of the best methods for collection, analysis and interpretation of geophysical data for forensic applications. It should be noted that as long as there is a geophysical contrast between a ‘target’ and the background materials, then other items could be resolved (see Milsom, 2003), such as buried weapons, money caches and even evidence of human occupation or excavation, but this article concentrates on clandestine burial searches.

Market Analysis:

The U.S. market value for forensic products and services is estimated to be $11 billion in 2011. That value should reach $17.2 billion in 2016 as it increases at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.4%.The DNA testing segment is estimated to be worth $1.3 billion in 2011, and in 2016 should be worth $2.3 billion after increasing at a CAGR of 11.6%.
