    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract To study short-term and long-term chemical processes in periodically flooded acid sulfate soils in the Bangkok Plain and in various smaller coastal plains along the Gulf of Thailand, 16 acid sulfate soils and one non-acid marine soil were examined for distribution of iron-sulfur compounds, elemental composition of soil and clay, clay mineralogy, redox potential, pH, and ionic activities in the soil solution.

The application of thermodynamics to mineral-water interactions enlightened various aspects of sulfate reduction, weathering and transformation of minerals (with emphasis on iron oxides, jarosite and clay minerals), and acid production and pH buffering reactions in the soils.
