Dataset for: Oil biodegradation: Interactions of artificial marine snow, clay particles, oil and Corexit

  • Shokouhalsadat Rahsepar (Creator)



This study examined how the interaction of oil with clays and or marine snow affected the biodegradation of oil by specific bacteria (Pseudomonas putida F1 and Rhodococcus qingshengii TUHH‌-12). This dataset contains experimental data on the effect of Corexit, EPS and suspended particles on the degradation of crude oil (oxygen consumption, n-alkane and BTEX and PAHs biodegradation).
