Leaching of Trace Metals from Two Different Size Soils

Abstract:

Article Preview

Two different size-grained soils were subjected to column experiments with a hydraulic loading representing two years’ rainfall. Leachates were collected and analysed for pH and temperature and for eight trace metals, namely; Iron (Fe), Copper (Cu), Chromium (Cr), Nickel (Ni), Lead (Pb), Manganese (Mn), Zinc (Zn), and Silica (Si). The analysis was conducted using an inductively coupled plasma (ICP) method of spectrometry. The results show different extractable metal concentrations from the two soil samples.
