How Volcanos can help solve crime

What is forensic geology and how has geology helped to solve several high profile criminal cases in the UK and internationally? For example how can soil found on a shoe help to solve a crime? Join us for a series of interactive talks followed by a treasure hunt for forensic geological clues using exhibition material in the Ulster Museum. This will reveal how a forensic geologist thinks and show how an understanding of geological processes and environments can assist in unravelling a crime.
