Abstract

Over the past few years more and more studies have been carried out in an attempt to utilize chemical profiles
of soil using a wide variety of analytical methods. The value of soil as evidence rests with its prevalence at
crime scenes and its transferability between the scene and the criminal. This can be of value for comparison if
the scene of crime is known, but could also be so in the identification of a scene. The main basis for the
comparison of sites to determine provenance is that soils vary from one place to another. The aim of this work
is to find simple methods to identify soil provenance based on FTIR and multivariate analysis
