Phosphorus sorption characteristics of Everglades soils along a eutrophication gradient


Journal Article

The amount of phosphate adsorbed on the soils and the zero equilibrium phosphate concentration supported by the soils exhibited a linear decrease with distance from the inflow structures supplying agricultural drainage. Linear phospate adsorption coefficient of the alkaline Everglades soils is higher than that of acidic pocosin bog peat soils of North Carolina but lower than wetland soils and sediments with a high mineral content. Phosphorus sorption characteristics of the Everglade soils are most likely regulated by CaCO3. -from Authors
