What is forensic soil analysis?
Forensic soil analysis is used by forensic soil experts and police forensic investigators to provide evidence to help police solve crime. In major crimes with no fingerprint or DNA evidence or reliable witness testimony, soil evidence can help police target their enquiries towards a particular suspect or location. Soil evidence can be even more valuable when it enhances other supporting evidence.
Visiting the School and Museum in Nivín, Peru
The community of Nivín is located about 25 km from the city of Casma on the north coast of Peru. The agricultural community is surrounded by massive archaeological sites that date from 200 B.C. to A.D. 1200. In the summer of 2015, my colleague, Elizabeth Cruzado Carranza and I were invited to visit the small school and museum in Nivín. The invitation was made by a teacher at the school, Professor Gustavo Valencia Tello. He integrates the archaeological resources of the area into the school curriculum and museum to teach students about the importance of their cultural heritage. read more »

As we close out the National Park Service Centennial and celebrate colors of our National Parks, we turn our attention to celebrating parks and trails by exploring soil art. A good place to learn about soil color is through art.
When I interviewed for this job six years ago, one of the questions I was asked was, “How do you make a cake?” Back then I was puzzled by the question… little did I know that my cooking talents would come in handy a few weeks later when I worked on the ColorChecker project for the first time.
Our interview series celebrating 100 years of the National Park Service in the United States and the important role soil plays in these parks continues. We venture to Lincoln, NE to talk to National Soil Classification Specialist (Soil Taxonomy) for the USDA-NRCS-NSSC-Standard, Kenneth F. Scheffe. Kenneth was formerly an NRCS State Soil Scientist in New Mexico from 1995-2010 and in that period, conducted intensive soil mapping on a number of National Parks and Monuments in cooperation with Mr. Pete Biggam (retired), NPS soil scientist and liaison to the National Cooperative Soil Survey.
Our interview series celebrating 100 years of the National Park Service in the United States and the important role soil plays in these parks continues. We head to Massachusetts to gaze at the expansive 40 miles of the Cape Cod seashore with Resource Soil Scientist Maggie Payne.
