Conference Session RS12 -
Forensic Geology: Ethics, Communication, Regulation and Opportunities.

    In the past decade, forensic geology has experienced global expansion and development,
    facilitated by the success of groups such as the IUGS Initiative on Forensic Geology,
    established in 2006. As part of the ‘Conference Session RS12 - Forensic Geology: Ethics,
    Communication, Regulation and Opportunities’ we will discuss, debate and explore:
    (i) ethical issues surrounding the use of forensic geoscience data and information,
    (ii) and expert opinion, (iii) effective communication, (iv) assessing the strengths
    and limitations of geoscience data in forensic investigations, (v) sampling strategies and
    geostatistics, (vi) ground search resources, (vii) application of geoscience databases,
    (viii) accreditation and regulation in forensic geology, (ix) alignment with forensic science
    (x) case studies, including the illegal trade in geological commodities and international
    wildlife crime and (xi) dealing with sensitive human issues such as the handling of
    human remains, sensitive and confidential data and case intelligence.
    Convenership: Duncan Pirrie, Rosa Maria Di Maggio, Lorna Dawson, Laurance Donnelly,
    Silvia Peppoloni, Giuseppe Di Capua.
