SPEA-E 544 Subsurface Microbiology and Bioremediation (3 cr.)

P: BIOL-M 310 or BIOL-M 350; CHEM-C1 26.

This course explores how microorganisms and microbial processes
affect the degradation of organic and inorganic pollutants in the
subsurface. Topics include measurements of subsurface microbial
activity, thermodynamics and biochemistry of degradation processes,
degradation kinetics, and the control and enhancement of these
processes in environmental matrices.
