The CSI Effect: Using Forensics to Study Oil Spills
When scientists couple the practices of geology with the strategies of crime scene forensics, they are able to look at an incident from every angle: “The present is the key to the past, but the past provides a window into the future.”
Researchers are using chemical forensics to predict how the Deepwater Horizon event’s impact will evolve over decades to come.
