THIS IS A PAST EVENT.

Physics Colloquium - Prof. Rob Maher, Montana State University, "Audio Forensic Analysis of Gunshot Sounds" (host: J. Dostal)

Abstract: 

Audio forensic analysis is the field of forensic science relating to the acquisition, analysis, and evaluation of sound recordings that may ultimately be presented in court or some official venue. The primary forensic concerns are assessing authenticity, enhancing speech to aid intelligibility, and scientific interpretation and documentation. Audio forensic evidence may include gunshot sounds, and this sort of evidence is increasingly available due to home doorbell cameras, law enforcement  body-worn cameras, and bystanders with smartphones. This presentation includes a description of contemporary methods and research about the interpretation of gunshot sounds for forensic purposes. Case study examples are also presented.
