The objective of this study was to determine to what extent the attenuation or loss of andic soil properties caused by land use change ? from forest (FOR, average C content 118.2 ± 23.7 g kg?1) to agricultural land (AGR, average C content 55.7 ± 16.7 g kg?1) use ? is reflected in soil organic matter (SOM) at the molecular level. For this, NaOH-extractable SOM of A horizons from 17 soils developed on amphibolitic parent material in NW Spain was studied by pyrolysis gas chromatography spectrometry...

Abstract An experiment was conducted to evaluate the influence of repeated application of sewage sludge, on N dynamics in soils under Monterey pine ( Pinus radiata D. Don.) stands. Sludge with a total N concentration of 4.2% was applied at four different loading rates (0, 2.4, 17, and 60 Mg ha −1 year −1 , DW equivalent), in two consecutive autumns. Soils were sampled once a year to a depth of 53 cm, and leachates were collected at 25 and 50 cm depth, after heavy rain. The soils under study have...

The organic matter (OM) of soils with andic properties has long been considered highly stable because of the presence of Al-humus complexes and sorption of organic ligands onto amorphous compounds. In this study, we characterized soils under different land use regimes located within an amphibolitic massif close to Santiago de Compostela (Spain), where soils with andic properties are present. Slash and burn agriculture was a common practice in the area until the second half of the 20th century. T...

Abstract The dissimilarities in soil pH and in aqueous Ca/Al and Mg/Al molar ratios in acid forest soils derived from either granite (GR) or amphibolite (AMP) materials are expected to have an influence on the root chemistry of forest species. Samples were taken from the A 1 and A 3 horizons of three GR soils (Typic Dystrudepts), under stands of Quercus robur L., Pinus radiata D. Don., and Eucalyptus globulus Labill., whereas A 1 and B horizons were sampled from three nearby AMP soils (Lithic Ha...

The affinity of PO 4 and SO 4 for reactive Al and Fe compounds may differ between the Bh and Bs horizons of Spodosols. Sorption of SO 4 and PO 4 in soils was investigated in four Spodosols from Northern Spain. Sorption experiments were carried out by adding 1.6 and 16.1 mM KH 2 PO 4 or 0.4 and 1.6 mM K 2 SO 4 to soils (soil/solution, 1:10). Most (98.5-99.8%) of the PO 4 added at 1.6 mM was retained by the illuvial Bh, Bhs, Bsh, and Bs horizons. The SO 4 retained by the same horizons at the same ...

Abstract Soils with andic soil properties generally retain large amounts of SO 4 2− , a feature related to their elevated contents of short-range ordered minerals and/or insoluble Al–humus compounds. The objective of this study was to investigate the relationships between SO 4 2− sorption and contents of Al and Fe compounds in soils from Galicia, NW Spain, with andic soil properties. Nineteen soils derived from gabbros, amphibolites, basic granulites, biotitic schists, and amphibolitic phyllites...

Sulfate sorption by forest soils decreases the potential detrimental effect of S deposition on cation leaching, Twenty-four soils from the 3416-km 2 area surrounding two lignite-fueled power-generating plants in NW Spain were studied to relate SO 2 4 sorption to soil properties and ultimately to the parent material. The area contains a variety of parent materials, and has a wide range of acidic soils (Haplumbrepts, Fulvudands, and Kanhaplohumults), Total annual precipitation ranges from 1100 to ...

Abstract Weathering rates, as required for the determination of Critical Loads of Acidity, can be approximated by using lithological classes defined based on the acid buffering capacity of the different parent materials. Sulfate sorption capacity of soils may also be required for the determination of Critical Loads of Acidity, especially in acid soils rich in Al and Fe oxy-hydroxides. The objective of this study was to determine if a relationship between SO 4 2− sorption in soils and the differe...
