Underwater Forensic Investigation is a valuable resource for both dive team members and detectives and focuses on the forensic potential of submerged evidence. Part of this book focuses on debunking myths associated with underwater recovery operations, while the bulk of the text focuses on a scientific protocol that can be applied to underwater crime scenes. Methods and techniques for the location, recovery and handling of submerged evidence are covered in an academic, objective manner. Taking an integrated approach, the text demonstrates how techniques from marine archaeology, forensic investigation, criminal procedural law and underwater search and recovery can be used to conduct an underwater crime scene analysis.
