Jarosite dissolution II - Reaction kinetics, stoichiometry and acid flux

Welch, Susan; Kirste, Dirk; Christy, Andrew; Beavis, Fern; Beavis, Sara


A study was undertaken to characterize a natural jarosite sample from an acid sulfate soils site and to experimentally determine the kinetics of dissolution and major ion release from jarosite under a range of different conditions. The jarosite was sourced from a degraded acid sulfate soil site that displays spatio-temporal variability in acidity on the mid north coast of NSW, Australia. Dissolution reaction rates varied as a function of solution composition but were roughly proportional to the...[Show more]
