The Florida Institute for Forensic Anthropology & Applied Sciences (IFAAS) and the Pasco Sheriff’s Office at USF is hosting a 3-day course (24 hours) to provide detectives and crime scene technicians with the skills necessary to locate human remains from surface scatter and clandestine burials. This course will provide classroom instruction and hands-on fieldwork; participants will search an area in the FIRST Outdoor Forensic Facility and learn how to effectively use ground-penetrating radar (GPR). Learn to:

• Develop a methodological strategy to search burial sites
• Scan the scene for analysis and documentation using 3D forensics
• Apply concepts with hands-on, practical exercises in remote sensing and field methods, including GPR, historic imagery, GIS, and GoogleEarth
