A qualitative field test for locating zones of anoxic soil

, : A qualitative field test for locating zones of anoxic soil. Journal of Soil Science 33(3): 563-566

A field test for ferrous ions, based on the formation of a red complex between Fe2+ and alpha , alpha '-dipyridyl, is shown to be useful in identifying anoxic zones in a cultivated soil.

The distribution of total S, SO4-S, S-2, pyrite-S, total Fe, Fe (II), total Mn and Mn (II) was studied in soil zones near and distant from roots of Salicornia stricta and Spartina anglica. Near plant roots S was depleted and Fe accumulated; in the...

A fire-wall area (about 270 × 310) with the Bunker C oil contaminated soil was selected for the bioremediation field test. This fire-wall area was separated into 18 plots by dirt dikes to test 6 bioremediation methods with three tests of each met...
