    Notes: The initial phase of composting is the most dynamic part of the process and is characterized by rapid increases in temperature, large swings in pH, and the degradation of simple organic compounds. DNA samples were taken from an active compost system to determine the microbial 16S rRNA gene sequences that were present during this phase. We observed two significant shifts in the composition of the microbial community, one between 12 and 24 h and the other between 60 and 72 h into the process using automated 16S–23S rRNA intergenic spacer amplification (ARISA). The 16S rRNA gene sequences adjoining the most common ARISA fragments at each time point were determined. We found that sequences related to lactic acid bacteria were most common during the first 60 h and Bacillus-type sequences were most common between 72 and 96 h. While the temperature increased steadily over the first 96 h, the pH dropped after 12 h and increased after 60 h correlating with the shift from Bacillus to lactic acid sequences and the later return to Bacillus-type sequences.

    Notes: Microstructural characterization of boron-containing SiC-reinforced SiC composites exposed at high temperature in high-water-vapor-pressure environments was used to determine surface recession rates and to understand the controlling degradation processes under these conditions. Results showed that composite degradation was controlled by a series of reactions involving the formation of silica, boria, borosilicate glass, and gaseous products. Comparison of results (from characterization of composites exposed at 1200°C and 1.5 atm of H2O in a laboratory furnace and in the combustion zone of a gas turbine) showed that these reactions were common to both exposure conditions and, consequently, there was little effect of gas velocity on degradation rates of boron-containing SiC/SiC composite materials.
