    Abstract

    The implementation of a simple aid that facilitates the designation and comparison of color in forensic soil cases is presented. The aid, a mount for forensic soil samples, when used in conjunction with the Munsell® Soil Color Charts allows the color of forensic soil samples to be accurately described and compared.
