Marine forensics refers to the scientific study of incidents or accidents occurring as a result of or involving bodies of water including oceans, streams or rivers, lakes or ponds. This science borrows techniques from traditional terrestrial forensic science and blends them with technologies and methods adapted for underwater research. One of the most well-known marine forensics programs is the NOS Marine Forensics Program, which was founded in the 1970s and is the only laboratory in the U.S. dedicated to the forensic analysis of marine species.
