Geophysics Expert Witnesses
What is a geophysics expert witness?
Geophysics expert witness candidates are typically professional engineers with extensive experience in geotechnical engineering, geochemistry, hydrology, meteorology, civil engineering, hydrogeology, or as a geologist or geophysicist. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a professional with prior expert witness testimony experience.
What types of cases require a geophysics expert witness?
Geophysics is the study of Earth and space. Geophysicists use physics, mathematics, geology, and engineering to study the characteristics of the earth and other planets. Cases that require an expert witness in geophysics may involve matters of fracking, contamination, mining accidents, or personal injury.
