Submission + - New fast, reliable method to detect gravesoil (scienceblog.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Gravesoil. Yes, just what it sounds like. Nothing against bloodhounds, but finding bodies buried by someone who wanted them to stay undiscovered can be difficult. A new technique developed by scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, can reliably detect biochemical changes in a decomposing cadaver. Typically, cadaver-sniffing dogs or ground penetrating radar are used to detect clandestine gravesites. But these methods are not always useful in all scenarios, such as if a body is buried under concrete.
