The primary goal of this research is to further our understanding of the effect of mixed oxygen/nitrate electron acceptor conditions on the biodegradation of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, m-xylene, naphthalene, and phenanthrene. Specific objectives include: (1) identify subsurface microbial cultures with the ability to biodegrade aromatic hydrocarbons under aerobic and anaerobic denitrifying conditions; (2) quantify the stoichiometry and kinetics of biodegradation of aromatic hydrocarbons under aerobic, anaerobic denitrifying and microaerophilic conditions; and, (3) simulate various field bioremediation schemes using different nutrient/electron acceptor delivery schemes.
