Ground biomineralisation to create permeability barriers

Applied Geomicrobiology involves the utilisation of microbial processes in order to alture the properties of ground materials. The aim of this seminar is to discuss ways in which this might be achieved and to outline a research example of such an approach. The key example is biomineralisation (solidification of soils by biological processes). The work is experimental in the UK, but has been applied by others on-site outside the UK.
