INEF meetings


The inaugural International Network of Environmental Forensics (INEF) conference was held in Calgary, Canada in 2009. 

The theme of this biennial conference is the presentation of environmental topics that are uniquely focused on the use of scientific techniques to identify the source, age and timing of contaminant release to the environment (air, surface water, soil, groundwater, and marine). 

INEF was founded in 2008 for the express purpose of providing a forum for scientists, environmental consultants, regulators and attorneys to share information regarding the use of environmental forensics.

INEF became an Interest Group of the RSC directly after the 2009 event.
