Emphasizing the importance of earth science in forensic analyses, this comprehensive book examines the tracing of origin of soil found on a body, the discovery of diatoms in a victim's lungs that indicate immersion in water, and the analysis of dirt for evidence of human contact. It covers particle color and size, along with mineralogical, trace element, and isotope analysis of both the common components of geological evidence; such as rocks, dusts, minerals, spores, and microfossils; as well as anthropogenic particles like pottery. It also explains procedures particular to criminalistic analysis and is enhanced with numerous case studies that tie methods of analysis to specific forensic applications.

There is an increasing amount of information available on the properties and science of glass forming melts. In order to facilitate the advance of glass science and engineering, Properties of Glass-Forming Melts compiles the work of leading glass scientists from six countries around the world into one concise treatment of the properties and processes involved in glass melts. These authors discuss such topics as glass-melt density, thermal expansion, heat conductivity, and chemical activities. This is an effective reference for scientists who require data on the behavior of viscous melts and for glass technologists who apply mathematical models simulating the melting and forming processes.
