Forensic Geology: “It’s Elementary”
In spring 2004, Timothy Ku offered a new course, “Forensic Geology,” which he believed would tap into the growing interest of students in crime scene investigations, and, at the same time, introduce proper methods of analyzing geologic materials. Interest in the course was strong from the beginning, with the first offering producing a wait list of 292 students. Course work includes reviewing actual criminal cases and considering geologic subjects and techniques from a forensic point of view. Students analyze everything from sand, soil, limestone, and fossils, to cat hair, cotton fibers, asbestos, and explosives; they make visual inspections and learn to use more high tech methods that include polarized light miscroscopy and x-ray defraction. The course ends with hypothetical criminal cases, real “whodunits?” that allow students to demonstrate mastery of analytical methods. Roll up your sleeves, dust off your magnifying glasses, and join Professor Ku for an introduction to forensic geology.
Presenter: Timothy Ku, assistant professor of earth and environmental sciences
