Summary and Info
Don't be seriously influenced by unworthy braking radiation. The following is excerpted from a formal review published in The Journal of Forensic Sciences by Chemistry Professor W.F. Kinard of the College of Charleston [JFS 51(1): 203 (2006)]:"This book by three of the leading authorities in the field outlines a critically important area of forensic science in the modern world. While many of the government laboratories have carried out extensive work in the past on the detection and attribution of radioactive materials, the work was primarily engaged with national security at the nation states' level, and not with individuals or small groups. The authors provide a comprehensive outline of the field with practical information presented in 25 chapters. This is not a book filled with theory, but critical information has been gathered and put in one place for readers wanting to know more about the forensic applications of nuclear science.""This book should be in the library of every forensic laboratory. While most laboratories may never encounter nuclear materials, this book contains valuable information about the nature of these materials. Forensic scientists should pay special attention to the chapters outlining how to detect radioactive materials and to preserve the samples for nuclear and traditional forensic analysis. The book makes it very clear that the sophisticated analyses and interpretation of these samples require highly sophisticated instrumentation and nuclear chemistry expertise that may only be available in national laboratories. However, first responders will have the responsibility of detecting and preserving radioactive samples for nuclear forensic analysis, and this book provides valuable information to help in this task."
