Pore water chemistry of acid sulfate soils: Chemical flux and oxidation Rates

van Oploo, P; White, Ian; Ford, Philip; Melville, Michael D; MacDonald, Bennett


Peeper pore water profiles above the oxidation front in acid sulfate soils (ASS) revealed unexpected differences in the elevation of the concentration maxima for chemical element species. These reflect the differing chemical and transport processes occurring in the oxic soil above, and the anoxic zone below, the oxidation front. Transport below the oxidation front is diffusive and by using the measured profiles of dissolved Li, liberated by acid hydrolysis of clays, it is possible to assess the...[Show more]
