- A multi-beach study of Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA, and enterococci in seawater and beach sandKelly D Goodwin
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, AOML, 4301 Rickenbacker Cswy, Miami, FL 33149, USA
Water Res 46:4195-207. 2012..To provide context for these results, the prevalence of S. aureus in sand was compared to published fomite studies, and results suggested that beach prevalence was similar to that in homes...
- Consumption of tropospheric levels of methyl bromide by C(1) compound-utilizing bacteria and comparison to saturation kineticsK D Goodwin
Cooperative Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Studies, Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, University of Miami, Miami, Florida 33149, USA
Appl Environ Microbiol 67:5437-43. 2001..Aerobic C(1) bacteria may provide model organisms for the biological oxidation of tropospheric MeBr in soils and waters...
- Description of toluene inhibition of methyl bromide biodegradation in seawater and isolation of a marine toluene oxidizer that degrades methyl bromideKelly D Goodwin
National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratories, Ocean Chemistry Division, 4301 Rickenbacker Cswy, Miami, FL 33149, USA
Appl Environ Microbiol 71:3495-503. 2005..The widespread inhibitory effect of toluene on natural seawater samples and the metabolic capabilities of Oxy6 indicate a possible link between aromatic hydrocarbon utilization and the biogeochemical cycle of methyl halides...

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratories, 4301 Rickenbacker Causeway, Miami, FL 33149, USA
Water Res 43:4802-11. 2009..aureus ranged from 60 to 76% and 53 to 79% for samples of beach seawater and sand, respectively. The frequency of detection of MRSA ranged from 2 to 9% and 0 to 12% for samples of seawater and sand, respectively...
- Luminex detection of fecal indicators in river samples, marine recreational water, and beach sandIliana B Baums

Cooperative Institute of Marine and Atmospheric Studies, Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, University of Miami, 4600 Rickenbacker Causeway, Miami, FL 33149, USA
Mar Pollut Bull 54:757-70. 2007..The methods presented can be used to rapidly (3-5h) screen environmental water samples for the presence of microbial contaminants and have the potential to be integrated into semi-automated detection platforms...
- Microbial removal of atmospheric carbon tetrachloride in bulk aerobic soilsY Mendoza
University of Miami, Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, Miami, FL 33149, USA
Appl Environ Microbiol 77:5835-41. 2011..Furthermore, CCl(4) removal was not affected in soils amended with copper sulfate or methane, supporting the results with MeF and suggesting that the observed CCl(4) removal was not significantly mediated by methanotrophs...
