“Some soils contain a great deal of lime, and because they have been formed from limestone, are called _limestone soils_.”
“The rapidity with which organic carbon can build up in soils is also indicated by examples of buried steppe soils formed during short-lived interstadial phases in Russia and Ukraine.”
“My observations from the sidelines of several disputes over remediation in neighborhoods adjacent to closed military bases that had similar buried leftovers affecting groundwater and soils is that the public disclosures did more harm through the level of anxiety generated for these residents than the contaminants ever had the possibility ofdoing.”
“Charcoal would control pests, add phosphorus and necessary minerals to localized agriculture. 25% of manures and other nitrogen sources should be reserved and re-introduced in soils in order to procure bio-active thermogenic factors.”
“With sufficient experience, one sees why certain soils are planted in one grape and other soils in the others.”
“The floodplain soils are more nutrient rich than the upland soils because annual inundation from the whitewater rivers (carrying suspended solids from the Andes) results in the deposition of organic and mineral sediments on the forest floor.”
“The vegetation on these nutrient-poor soils is sclerophyllous low scrub or low forest with a more open canopy.”
“Drainage of these types of soils is critical to keep water away from the soil layer with organics to keep the soil from rebounding and in turn lifting the foundation.”
“Mercury is still a problem in Dutch soils, and especially in dredged harbor sediments.”
“Another technique, which can be used in rocky soils, is to encircle the entire building with buried heavy copper cable without insulation, so this long loop of copper is the ground.”
