About ENFORCE FPAS, UPM
Environmental forensics encompasses all aspects of pollution and contamination in air, water, marine environment, soil and biota. Research in the field requires sound training in biology, physics and chemistry. Environmental forensics involve in the identification of sources, distribution and transport pathways of pollutants. Why the pollutants could be injurious to health and the extent to which they can accumulate in the environment to form potentially toxic contaminants are also within the scope of environmental forensics. The legal aspect of environmental forensics is at least as important. Therefore, in addition to the above attributes, environmental scientists who are involved in environmental forensics need to have knowledge of regulations and the law because our environment is becoming increasingly regulated.
The Environmental Forensics Research Centre, Faculty of Environmental Studies, Universiti Putra Malaysia was established on the 1st of September 2008.
