Re: [greenyes] Decomposition Rates


Rose:
You may want to cantact William Rathje, (rathjewl@no.address) the author of the
2001 book called "Rubbish" (co written by Cullen Murphy from the Atlantic
Monthly) to obtain the most recent actual decomposition data. One of his
chapters is entitled, Landfill Excavation, and includes Into the Unknown and the
Myths of Biodegradation. He has been engaged in ongoing studies that bury and
dig up waste in landfills to look at ACTUAL decomposition. He is currently at
Stanford University as a visiting professor. Their switchboard would be able to
get you some info on his office number.
