Ground-Water Microbiology and Geochemistry
by Francis H. Chapelle
John Wiley & Sons Inc.
Gain an understanding of biogeochemical cycling in groundwater systems with this multidisciplinary approach to the impact of microorganisms and microbial processes on groundwater systems. The updated edition, offering many new advances in the field, begins with an overview of microbiology, covering the growth, metabolism, genetics, and ecology of microorganisms found in subsurface environments. The second part of the book offers a hydrologic perspective on how microbial processes affect groundwater geochemistry in pristine systems. It also provides the different classes of groundwater systems and gives an overview of sampling techniques.
