Each component will be discussed in detail with salient examples of actual case histories the presenter has investigated. MEA has been involved in cases which involved claims of up to about $1 billion dollars. In performing geoforensic investigations, the standard of what “a reasonable degree of engineering certainty” means will be discussed. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of lessons learned based on Dr. Marino’s experience.
