Abstract

Only a decade ago it seemed inconceivable to suggest that microbial processes could potentially impact geophysical signatures. However, today is it clear that geophysical signatures result from a range of microbial processes covering the scale of an individual cell to the scale of contaminant plumes in the Earth. A pressing question in Biogeophysics is how to quantify the geophysical signatures of microbial processes through the development of appropriate modeling frameworks. Success in this venture will likely involve multidisciplinary research between geophysicists, biogeochemists, and microbiologists.
