- How do mineral-OM associations affect microbial OM degradation rates, (thereby contributing the knowledge of mechanistic links between functional composition, mineral association and microbial rates)?
- What are kinetic parameters and thermodynamic contraints on OM degradation over a range of redox conditions?
- Are reactive oxygen species are generated at rates sufficient to contribute significantly to metal cycling, mineral precipitation, and organic transformations under variable redox and various microbial growth conditions?
