Coming Soon!

This book introduces the principals of groundwater microbiology, from aspects of cell structure and growth, to the bioenergetics and metabolism of subsurface microorganisms, to the geochemical and physical influences of widespread microbial activity on groundwater systems and water quality. The coupling of microorganisms with their geological surroundings – a bond established billions of years ago as life took hold on our planet – is of particular value in bioremediation and microbially induced mineral precipitation applications, such as the clean-up of contaminated groundwater systems or reducing aquifer permeability.
