Abstract

O2 litter and A1 horizon soil samples from various locations within the Santa Fe and Cibola National Forests of New Mexico were assayed. During a 48-h incubation, samples of O2 litter adsorbed 1.6-4.1 nmol g-1 of added sulfate S and formed 2.0-9.8 nmol g-1 of organic S from this anion. Between 17-48% of this organic S was mobilized within 24 h. Al horizon soils adsorbed 1.2-4.9 nmol g-1 of added sulfate S and formed 1.6-4.8 nmol g-1 of organic S during 48 h. Between 20-50% of this organic S was mobilized within 24 h. -from Authors
