Monitoring and distribution of bacterial transport, bioclogging processes, imaging to infer biogeochemical processes associated with bioremediation, remediation-induced biogeochemical end-products are detectable using geophysical methods. Biogeochemical processes alter the physical and chemical properties in the subsurface, and efficient monitoring of these changes is important for successful implementation of soil and groundwater remediation. In the study, two different geophysical studies are discussed from Germany and Hungary.
