Experts from the field of meteorology often study the presence and possible sources of air pollution, as well as climatology, hydrology, storms, oceanography, wind damage, weather forecasting, flooding, and weather risk assessment, all of which can be altered by the impact of pollution. Environmental science engineers also study the presence of pollution in the atmosphere and the possible effects on risk assessment, public health, toxic exposure, human health risk assessment (H.H.R.A.), industrial hygiene, and quality assurance. Pollution expert witnesses should be well-versed in these subjects.
Experts also monitor industries that risk producing and releasing pollution into the groundwater and land in an effort to control and maintain environmental health and safety.
