Biodegradation in TMVOC
Quick question regarding how to incorporate the biodegradation into a TMVOC model. I would like to see what would be the significance of a biodegradation in a overall fate and transport of a contaminant. So, I added a number to the decay constant in CHEMP.9 tab (i.e. ALAM). However, when I look at the results I do not see any outputs pertaining to the biodegradation in the output file. The thing is for instance, if I activate the sorption onto the solid, there will be a column added in the output file under material balance section indicating how much of a particular chemical has been absorbed onto the grains. However, with the biodegradation regardless of the value (i.e. 0 or > 0) assigned to the “ALAM”, there is no additional information pertaining to biodegradation. How can I extract the biodegradation effect? Could anyone please advise on this?
