Subsurface Biogeochemical Research Program

Performance Measures and Milestones: FY2006

GPRA Goal/Annual Target (SC GG 5.21.1)
Develop predictive model for contaminant transport that incorporates complex biology, hydrology, and chemistry of the subsurface. Validate model through field
1st Quarter Measures (Istok, due 12/31/05) Report results of updated small-scale model using recent advances in understanding of coupled thermodynamic and biologic factors to predict changes in Oak Ridge Field Research Center microbial community composition in response to exogenous alterations in subsurface chemistry.
