What is substrate in SEAM3D?


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am trying to use SEAM3D to simulate TCE dechlorination in anaerobic condition and I am not quite sure what substrate really means. I thought substrate can be microbes' food like lactate, but I found tCE degradation is not related to how much substrate I injected, which seems not reasonable to me. Another question I am confused is what is the relationship between biodegradation package and reductive dechlorination package. I read the manual and still do not quite understand. I found the parameters in biodegradation package do not affect TCE dechlorination at all. Am I right?

Any assistance would be much helpful! Thank you very much!
