The ORD internal report is a summary of proceedings of the Workshop on Biodegradation Kinetics organized to examine future directions and focus of scientific investigations of the kinetic aspects of microbial degradation rates of organic chemicals in natural environments. Position papers cover the following topics: (1) statistical and experimental requirements for modeling decay curves; (2) the 'second order' approach assumption, limitations and research needs; (3) factors controlling biodegradation rates in microbial communities; (4) application of uptake and mineralization kinetics; (5) relationships between chemical structure and biodegradation rates; and (6) extrapolation of laboratory biodegradation data to the field. Discussions within each session are summarized by panel members in reports that include a consensus of the direction and extent of research required for the description of biodegradation rates of xenobiotic chemicals in natural environments.
