12. Weathering Patterns of Ignitable Liquids with the Advanced Distillation Curve Method
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 118.003
Topic: Forensics
Published: 1/17/2013
Authors: Samuel Allen, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: One can take advantage of the striking similarity of ignitable liquid vaporization (or weathering) patterns and the separation observed during distillation to predict the composition of residual compounds in fire debris. This is done with the ad ...

14. Extended Feature Set Profile Specification
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1134
Topic: Forensics
Published: 1/14/2013
Authors: Melissa K Taylor, Will Chapman, Austin Hicklin, George Kiebuzinski, John Mayer-Splain, Rachel Wallner, Peter Komarinski
Abstract: This specification defines Extended Feature Set (EFS) Profiles - sets of features to be used in latent friction ridge (fingerprint, palmprint or plantar) searches of automated friction ridge identification systems (AFIS). The EFS Profiles are des ...
