Figure 4

Urea concentration as predicted by the reactive transport model for each tube reactor used in the analysis. The concentration map for all the tubes is plotted using the same colour scale making it evident that each tube had a different but within each tube very narrow urea concentration range. Biofilm profiles for each tube obtained from microscopy data are shown as white lines in each panel. Note the very slight concentration gradients radially outward from the centre of the tubes.
