Some of the essential parameters of the bioremediation process include monitoring oxygen and carbon dioxide concentrations in the vicinity of the soil. Baseline field measurements of oxygen and carbon dioxide can assist in defining the region that requires active aeration as well as its radius of influence. Respirometry is an effective method for determination of the biodegradation rate of bacterial or chemical applications.
