Investigation of Chemical REDOX Gradient and Contributions to SOD

The project characterized the oxygen and sulfur flux and chemical gradients from three different tailings ponds and monitored the chemistry and microbiology from three FFT materials. These included active FFT storage sites and inactive FFT storage. The primary goal was to establish the "driving force" or chemical flux responsible for dissolved gas expression pore water release and sediment (DO) demand. Investigating flux in and flux out potential for three different FFT materials was used to determine chemical diffusive flux. This information is critical for defining settling behaviour stability and the role of microbial influences for transport of gas and pore water expression to the water cap.
