About this book

Considering human population growth and the increasing demands for safe drinking water, there is a need to manage groundwater resources effectively. This text explores the microbial characterization of aquifers, supplying information on hydrogeology and groundwater contamination. It focuses mainly on: sampling methodologies; detection of bacterial, protozan, viral and other microbial pathogens; microbial modelling and transport; DNA fingerprinting and other microbial characterization approaches; and microbial risk assessment groundwater applications.


Hydrogeology and groundwater contamination; groundwater sampling for microbial analysis; detection of bacterial pathogens; detection of enteroviruses and bacteriophages; detection of giardia cysts and cryptospordium oocysts; characterization of bacteria by DNA fingerprinting; modelling transport of microorganisms in groundwater; microbial risk assessment applications for groundwater; future advances in subsurface microbiology.
