The international workshop, held April 10-14, 1978, at Pensacola Beach, Florida, focuses on pertinent issues related to the scientific investigation of microbial degradation of organic chemicals in aquatic environments. Participants discuss methodological criteria for these investigations and the need for biodegradation studies. Speakers and contributed papers for open sessions explore these topics: (1) biochemistry of microbial degradation; (2) transformation in aquatic environments; (3) compartmentalization in aquatic environments; (4) biodegradation in microcosms; (5) degradation methodology; and (6) persistence and extrapolation. Discussions within each session are presented. These proceedings conclude with a summary report and workshop consensus reports drafted by special task groups with recommendations concerning the research, production, and regulation of potential aquatic pollutants.
