Abstract

This paper reports the use of microelectrodes to measure O penetration in different aged colonies of and In young (18 h) colonies of and O disappeared at depths of 25–30 μm and 35–40 μm respectively. In young colonies, O reached a minimum but was never completely absent. As colonies aged (24–168 h) the depth to which O penetrated increased.
