Collision frequencies of microbial aggregates with small particles by differential sedimentation.


Collision and coagulation rates between microbial aggregates and small particles were measured for individual aggregates (1.0-2.5 mm) that settled through a suspension of fluorescent yellow-green (YG) particles (2.83 microm) placed in a settling column. The microbial aggregates, with an average fractal dimension of 2.26, were generated in a lab-scale… (More)
