Abstract

Aqueous and mineral intrinsic biodegradation assessment (AMIBA) is an approach to natural attenuation that focuses on reduced Fe and S minerals as opposed to measuring aqueous parameters. With a single monitoring event the method can demonstrate plume retreat using the Fe foot print approach, assess bioremediation efficiency and estimate source decay for predictive modeling of containment duration. In microcosms, the importance of mineral iron and sulfides in degrading simulated leachate was demonstrated. Fieldwork at a landfill site demonstrated that elevated levels of reduced iron and sulfide minerals are found with in landfill plumes.
