A new paper, co-authored by Drs. Stephane Ngueleu, Fereidoun Rezanezhad and Philippe Van Cappellen, has been published in Journal of Geofluids. The article, titled "Biodegradation Kinetics of Benzene and Naphthalene in the Vadose and Saturated Zones of a (Semi)-arid Saline Coastal Soil Environment", was written in collaboration with Drs. Riyadh Al-Raoush and Saeid Shafieiyoun from Qatar University. The paper quantifies the biodegradation kinetics of petroleum hydrocarbons in (semi)-arid saline coastal soil environments and the effect of salinity on biodegradation due to seawater intrusion considering the vadose and saturated zones of shallow coastal soil environment. The article can be found on the Journal of Geofluids website.
