Title Effects of Remediation Amendments on Vadose Zone Microorganisms.
Publication Date Aug 2012
Media Count 16p
Personal Author F. A. Tilton H. M. Miller
Abstract This study focuses on measuring microbial metabolic responses of Hanford 200 area deep vadose zone microorganisms to remediation amendments using Biolog Ecoplates. After initial soil batch experiments were conducted, column methodology was developed and remediation amendments were exposed to column-packed sediment to observe their effects on microbial growth. X-ray microfocus tomography (XMT) was also used to visualize and analyze column packing and investigate technologies to visualize the formation of bio-films in standarized soil columns.
