Scanning electron micrographs of experimental run products. Images collected at the Laboratory for Biological Ultrastructure.
Graeme Bowles (B.S. 2003)

As part of his undergraduate senior thesis, Graeme performed experiments to evaluate the role of a consortia of bacteria on the breakdown of pyrite. The Kempton Mine, a coal mine that ceased operation in 1950, has been transmitting about 5 mgpd of acidic effluent into the headwaters of the Potomac River. Graeme designed batch experiments that utilized mine effluent, pyrite, and appropriate media so the bacteria could flourish.
