Source Identification and Chemical Fingerprinting

Source Identification

Our source identification and fingerprinting team integrates scientific data, historical research, and advanced modeling and statistical tools to develop defensible scientific and legal conclusions about the source, age, and history of chemical pollutants released into the environment.

Our forensic methods include reconstruction of operational histories; chemical fingerprinting; and advanced statistical, hydrogeologic, and fate and transport modeling. These methods are invaluable when evaluating plume behavior, sourcing, co-mingling, and other litigation-related issues. Our scientists and engineers are leaders in using these methods, along with in-depth research, to produce scientifically defensible outputs to assist attorneys, insurance companies, and industrial and commercial clients in better understanding their potential liability at upland or in water facilities.
