Title

Relationship between mineral surface observations and bulk conductivity at a hydrocarbon contaminated site

Abstract

"A recent geoelectrical model suggests that the higher bulk electrical conductivities observed at contaminated locations (relative to uncontaminated locations) at an aged hydrocarbon contaminated site result from enhanced mineral weathering increasing total dissolved solids (TDS) in solution during biodegradation. In this study, the morphology of mineral grain surfaces was examined using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to provide evidence of enhanced mineral weathering"--Abstract, leaf iii.
