Abstract
The accumulation of biofilms has significant implications for the design and management of a number of technological applications. The complexity of the microbial communities growing in porous media is not properly understood and it often implies a simplification in the modeling procedure. This highlights the need for a sound understanding of the components, structure and hydraulic characteristics of the microbial community, as well as of its spatial distribution. This work tries to bring some l...
