- ... Chemotaxis has the potential to decrease the persistence of nonaqueous phase liquid (NAPL) contaminants in aquifers by allowing pollutant-degrading bacteria to move toward sources of contamination and thus influence dissolution. This experimental study investigated the migratory response of chemotactic bacteria to a distribution of residual NAPL ganglia entrapped within a laboratory-scale sand col ...
