It could be concluded from these results that both soils continued on sorbing phosphorus up to sixty days of incubation period.
A variety of materials exist that have the potential for use in sorbing P from ditch flow (table 1).
were used as anionic species and a large number of radionuclides from low to highly sorbing were used.
To immobilize cells of microorganisms, we used granules with buckwheat husk (BWH) and barley husk (BH) as carrying sorbing agents.
Several studies have shown that applications of phosphorus sorbing materials rich in Al, Fe, or Ca can reduce soluble P concentrations in both soils and manure (Callahan et al.
1996), who reported variation of the travel path of a nonlinearly sorbing solute front in time with Freundlich exponent.
Thus, the aim of the present study is to investigate a) to what extent PCBs and lindane are absorbed by in vitro intestinal Caco-2 cells; b) the effect of sorbing constituents on absorption of the HOCs, including whether HOCs mobilized from soil during digestion contribute to uptake into the intestinal cells; and c) which factors are likely to have the largest impact on oral bioavailability of the soil-borne HOCs.
i] from OM residues satisfies, at least to some extent, soil P sorbing sites, resulting in an apparent reduction in P sorption (i.
Larger amounts of P were applied to higher P sorbing soils (0-960 kg P/ha, Expts 4-6), and smaller amounts were applied to lower P sorbing, very sandy soils (0-310 kg P/ha, Expt 7).
Thus, for example, the very low P sorbing River Sands on the north bank of the Herbert near Ingham are well discriminated by [K.
However, their analysis includes data from a number of studies with sorbing systems which introduced considerable uncertainty in the estimation of [beta].
The most straightforward problem associated with the determination of labile P in highly sorbing soils is the difficulty associated with the accurate measurement of solution P at the low concentrations frequently found in highly P-sorbing soils (Wolf et al.
