Raymond C. Murray chaired the geology department at Rutgers University before serving as vice president for research and professor of geology at the University of Montana for twenty years until his retirement in 1996. Murray is best known for his pioneering book Forensic Geology, coauthored with John C. F. Tedrow.
This popular introduction to forensic geology—the science of tracing muddy footprints, finding buried bodies, and exposing gem and mineral fraud—is now even better. With more than fifteen new case studies and several new forensic techniques, Evidence from the Earth Second Edition, details how modern-day Sherlock Holmes's can solve crimes using soils, rocks, and other earth materials. Along the way readers will learn about the history of forensic geology; types of rocks, soils, gemstones, and related man-made materials; how geologic evidence can place a suspect at the scene of a crime; techniques used to detect mine, gem, and art fraud; specialized equipment for geoforensic investigations; and how geologic evidence is used in court.
