Forensic and Environmental Detection of Explosives

Front Cover
John Wiley & Sons, Sep 9, 1999 - 285 pages
Forensic and Environmental Detection of Explosives is the first comprehensive book on the detection of explosives. It combines the two main fields of application:
* Forensic detection of explosives - the detection of hidden explosives in airfreight, luggage, vehicles, and on suspects.
* Environmental detection of explosives - detecting on-site explosives in soil and water of contaminated areas and the detection of landmines.
Dr Jehuda Yinon is a world renowned expert on the analysis of explosives and has served as consulting expert during the Oklahoma bombing trial, where his previous book Modern Methods and Applications in Analysis of Explosives was quoted by both the prosecution and defense experts. This new book complements the author's previous book on the analysis of explosives. It includes the following features:
* Classifications of explosives
* Explanations of the basic terms related to the detection of explosives
* Vapor detection methods
* Probing radiation methods
* Tagging of explosives
* Systems integration and performance testing
* Detection of explosives in contaminated areas
* Detection of landmines.
This book is an ideal reference book for those working in forensic and law enforcement agencies concerned with the detection of hidden explosives, as well as for environmental scientists dealing with explosives decontamination. The book is also recommended as a text book for graduate students in analytical, environmental and forensic science.
