About this book

Featuring the theme, From Sources to Solution, this book is based on the research papers presented during the International Conference on Environmental Forensics 2013. It covers multi-disciplinary areas of environmental forensics featuring major themes: characterization, assessment, and monitoring; new approach, rapid assessment, and analytical techniques; pollution control technology; environmental health risk assessment; and policy, governance and management. It present information for researchers from the science and social sciences disciplines and contribute to the advancement of Environmental Forensics. It also aims at evaluating the environmental damages as the result of indiscriminating discharge of toxic environmental pollutants.

About the authors

Dr. Ahmad Zaharin Aris is an Associate Professor at the Department of Environmental Sciences, Faculty of Environmental Studies, Universiti Putra Malaysia. He is currently the Head of Environmental Forensics Research Centre at UPM. He received his PhD from Universiti Malaysia Sabah in the area of hydrogeochemistry. His primary research areas are heavy metal toxicities in the environment and geochemistry modeling using the PHREEQC. He is also actively working in the area of hydrochemistry, environmental analysis, and environmental chemistry. He has several joint projects with various international institutions, such as, The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) and Japan Society for the Promotion of Science-Asian Core Program (JSPS-ACORE). He was also a member of scientific committee to various international conferences and professional organizations (The Geological Society of London and Young Scientist Network-Academy Sciences of Malaysia) and currently serves as editorial board members for several citation indexed journals.
