Detection and Monitoring of Subsurface Contamination by Using Geophysical Methods and Data: Case Studies of Contamination from Chemical and Biological (Biogeochemical) Processes
Monitoring and distribution of bacterial transport, bioclogging processes, imaging to infer biogeochemical processes associated with bioremediation, remediation-induced biogeochemical end-products are detectable using geophysical methods. Biogeochemical processes alter the physical and chemical properties in the subsurface, and efficient monitoring of these changes is important for successful implementation of soil and groundwater remediation. In the study, two different geophysical studies are discussed from Germany and Hungary.
I would like to thank Dr. Richard M. Caprioli, Dr. Joseph H. Banoub and Dr. El Mokhtar Essassi for inviting me to the Molecular Technologies for Detection of Chemical and Biological Agents NATO SPS ASI 984915.
