Abstract:

Program goals were to provide a better quantitative and mechanistic understanding of chemical processes that occur in fine-grained coastal and continental margin sediments. Our long-term goal is to understand how the chemical and textural characteristics of sediments comprised of different clay mineral suites might exert a selective pressure on the development of natural consortia of bacteria.
