Effects of Heterogeneity and Experimental Scale on the Biodegradation of Diesel

  title={Effects of Heterogeneity and Experimental Scale on the Biodegradation of Diesel},
  author={Cynthia J Davis and Todd L Cort and Dongping Dai and Tissa H. Illangasekare and Junko Munakata-Marr},
Biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbon contamination is a common method forremediating soils and groundwater. Due to complexities with field-scale studies,biodegradation rates are typically evaluated at the bench-scale in laboratory studies.However, important field conditions can be difficult to mimic in the laboratory. Thisstudy investigates three scaling factors that can impact laboratory biodegradation ratesand that are frequently unaccounted for in typical laboratory experimental… CONTINUE READING
