Air Quality Lab: Collaborators: Makenzie Postma, Mckenzie Reynolds and Lauren Delavigne Abstract: In this lab, it was observed how much ozone is inside and outside; also the difference in amount of particulate matter inside and outside. My hypothesis concluded that outside would have a higher ozone and particulate matter than inside. Background. The City of Rochester is currently completing an Environmental Site Investigation at the privately owned brownfield property located at 24 Seneca Avenue on the north side of the City of Rochester (Site Location Map).The site is located in a commercial/industrial area and consists of one single-story, masonry and wood factory warehouse.   In this course we will investigate important topics in Groundwater Microbiology from both environmental and microbiological perspectives. We will use lectures and literature readings to explore topics including groundwater contaminiation, bioremediation, microbial physiology, microbial ecology, and biotechnology in relation to natural and perturbed groundwater systems. The Environmental Geochemistry and Geomicrobiology (EGG) lab, led by Andrea Foster, has been investigating Iron-oxidizing, iron-reducing, and arsenic-reducing microbial communities at the Lava Cap Mine Superfund site (Nevada City, CA) to understand the interplay between processes that attenuate and mobilize arsenic (As) in surface waters.

QA/QC. Standard samples for QA/QC are prepared in the laboratory using three temperature controlled water baths set at 8°, 16°, and 24° C. Water is equilibrated with lab air by slow stirring at these temperatures for a minimum of 48 hours before sampling.

This facility is a fully serviced research laboratory for studying the role of microbes in various geochemical processes at scales spanning the nano, meso and meter scale.

The laboratory’s research interests range from field-scale research to fundamental investigations of molecular-scale microbial-metal-mineral redox interactions. The reader should recognize that the descriptions and interpretations are initial and subject to change as the science of groundwater microbiology progresses from infancy to recognition as a mature and well understood part of science.

In its development, this book has been written to serve as a guide to a very new aspect of science. Geophysical methods can be helpful in mapping areas of contaminated soil and groundwater. Electrical resistivity surveys were carried out at a site of shallow hydrocarbon contamination in Ahoada, South-South Nigeria.

This was aimed at evaluating the subsoil conditions and groundwater quality of the area three years after the post-spill clean-up exercise. The findings of the desk study will assist in the planning of the initial site/ground investigation phase to include the installation of groundwater monitoring wells and long term groundwater monitoring.

Water contaminated with pathogenic species also has the normal inhabitants of the human intestine. A good bacterial indicator of fecal pollution should fulfill the following criteria: (1) exist in high numbers in the human intestine and feces; (2) not be pathogenic to humans; (3) easily, reliably and cheaply detectable in environmental by: The textbook provides an overview of basic applied microbiology, a review of microbial processes in pristine ground water systems, and coverage of the biodegradation of human-introduced contaminants in ground-water systems.

The book was designed to bridge the gap between applied microbiology and applied hydrogeology. ♥ Book Title: Practical Manual of Groundwater Microbiology, Second Edition ♣ Name Author: D.

I ordered this book for my geology lab and after two weeks into my labs, I keep finding more and more pages missing. Almost all of the pages I needed were not in the book.

Also when I ordered this book, I was in a hurry to get it so I paid the extra for expedited shipping--the book took the longest to come (9 days!!) all my other books /5(10).

When soil and groundwater samples are collected as part of an environmental investigation, it is crucial that the scientist completing the sampling and coordinating the laboratory analysis follow industry standard operating procedures and good housekeeping practices.

It is imperative to use the proper protocol to minimize the potential for sample corruption and cross contamination. Petroleum Microbiology is a state-of-the-art presentation of the specific microbes that inhabit oil reservoirs, with an emphasis on the ecological significance of anaerobic microorganisms.

An intriguing introduction to extremophilic microbes, the book considers the various beneficial and detrimental effects of bacteria and archaea indigenous to the oil field environment.
