A ground search may be defined as; 'The application and management of systematic procedures and appropriate detection equipment to locate specified targets' (UK, Association of Chief Police Officers). Ground searches may be conducted to locate missing persons, homicide graves, no-body murders, recover evidence and concealed items to support a prosecution, gather intelligence, deprive criminals of their resources and opportunities to commit crime, protect vulnerable targets or to assist with search and rescue. The objective of this paper is to provide an overview of the applications of forensic geology and geophysics for ground searches. This paper also seeks to reach out to new audiences in the United Arab Emirates and Middle East region, who may be considering the deployment of geophysics to assist with ground searches. Source

The units of time (both absolute time and duration) most practical to use when dealing with very long times, e.g. in Nuclear Chemistry and Earth and Planetary Sciences, are multiples of the year, or annus (a). Its proposed definition in terms of the SI base unit for time, the second (s), for the epoch 2000.0 is 1 a = 3.155 692 5445 x 10 7 s. Adoption of this definition, and abandonment of the use of distinct units for time differences, will bring the Earth and Planetary Sciences into compliance with quantity calculus for SI and non-SI units of time.
