Stable Isotope Analysis in a Humanitarian Context

Event Dates
March 12, 2019, 11:00 am EDT - March 12, 2019, 12:30 pm EDT
Event Duration
90 minutes
Location
Online

This webinar will introduce stable isotope analysis and its validity as analytical tool in establishing the geographic origin and life history of unidentified individuals from forensic and humanitarian contexts. In such cases where comparison with missing persons reports and DNA is not feasible – or even possible because geographic origins are unknown – the use of stable isotope analysis is a viable option for determining provenance and has been used successfully in a number of forensic cases to determine regional origins.

Detailed Learning Objectives:

  1. What are stable isotopes
  2. What information can be extracted from stable isotope analysis
  3. What are the potential forensic applications in a Humanitarian context
