Detection, Source Identification, Environmental Transport, Fate, and Treatment of Pathogenic Microorganisms Derived from Animal Wastes (California)

Detection, quantification, and characterization of pathogen behavior   in different environmental matrices; determine inactivation/survival   rates and transport characteristics of fecal coliform and pathogens   from manure sources to surface or ground water; determine sources of   nonpoint fecal pollution at the Santa Ana River Watershed by   bacterial source tracking technology; quantify important mechanisms   influencing the transport and retention of pathogenic microorganisms   in subsurface environments; adapt and improve numerical models for   simulating the environmental transport and fate of pathogenic   microorganisms; and develop and optimize manure and lagoon water   treatment strategies to minimize the transmission of pathogenic   microorganisms to food and water resources.    (microbial source tracking); (MST); (bacterial source tracking);   (BST)
