Using X-ray fluorescence core scanning to assess acid sulfate soils

Proske, Ulrike; Heijnis, Hendrik; Gadd, Patricia S.


During the formation of acid sulfate soils (ASS), several chemical elements in the sediment are mobilised. These elements are removed from the sediment or become enriched as precipitates in distinct horizons. The stratigraphic depth in which these precipitates accumulate is element-specific and is located either within the oxidised or in a transitional zone between the oxidised and the reduced zone. Aim of this study is to demonstrate how X-ray fluorescence core scanning, together with detailed...[Show more]
