The International Network of Environmental Forensics (INEF) is one of the Royal Society of Chemistry's many Interest Groups. The Interest Groups are member driven groups which exist to benefit RSC members, and the wider chemical science community, in line with the Royal Society of Chemistry's strategy and charter.
The Group aims to provide a forum for scientists, environmental consultants, regulators and attorneys to share information regarding the use of environmental forensics.
Environmental forensics is the use of scientific techniques to identify the source, age and timing of a contaminant into the environment.
INEF is involved with the design and delivery of a number of outreach programs, including conferences and workshops, to interested parties throughout the world. Information shared through these outreach programs provide investigators employing environmental forensic techniques with the most current scientific information available to identify the source, age and timing of contaminant release to the environment.
We also have an online community, which is based on MyRSC, for anyone who shares our interests.
We are always looking for new members who are keen to get involved and to help organise our activities. If you would like to find out more please contact the Secretary.
We also encourage you to connect with us on LinkedIn.
