Kinetic and hydraulic studies in high-rate biological filters

  • John Krska

Student thesis: Doctoral ThesisDoctor of Philosophy


Most published work on either low- or high-rate biological filters covers one of three topics: kinetics, microbiology/ecology or hydraulics. These areas have been re-examined together for high-rate filters in order to further integrate them and enable appropriate utilization of low-rate filter experience.
