Editor

Water Resource Research Develop improved methodologies on detection, quantification, and characterization of pathogen survival in different environmental matrices. Determine inactivation/survival rates and transport characteristics of fecal coliform and pathogens from manure sources to surface or ground water. Determine sources of nonpoint fecal pollution to urban watershed using bacterial source tracking technology. Quantify important mechanisms influencing the transport and retention of pathogenic microorganisms in subsurface environments. Adapt and improve numerical models for simulating the environmental transport and fate of pathogenic microorganisms. Use models to explore implications of various pathogen transport mechanisms and fate in heterogeneous systems, to develop best management practices, and to assess risk of contamination of food and water resources.
