Respirometry for Environmental Science and Engineering
Fundamentals of respirometry:
Covers biological growth relationships and their application to respirometry.
Features of commercial respirometers:
Describes the basis for design and operation of commercial respirometers including discussions of their operating features.
Applications of respirometry:
Covers biodegradation testing, toxicity assessment, anaerobic and anoxic tests, and biomass activity.
