To understand the effects of microbial activity on the mobilization and speciation of arsenic in soil, the cycling of arsenic was studied in microcosm experiments under laboratory conditions. Particular attention was paid to the biomethylation of arsenic and to the toxicity of inorganic and organic arsenic species for microbes. Microbes enhanced(More)
The influence of microbes on the speciation of arsenic and production of arsines in contaminated soils was investigated under laboratory conditions. Microbes were able to carry out reactions that resulted in changes in the speciation of arsenic in soil. The transformation of soil dominating species, arsenate [As(V)], under both aerobic and anaerobic(More)
Leaching and runoff of arsenic (As) from the contaminated soil of an old wood impregnation plant, and fate in a recipient freshwater ecosystem, was studied in soil-water-sediment mesocosms in laboratory (0.9 m3; total water volume 200 l). During the 4-month experiment total leaching and discharge of As from regularly irrigated soil was approximately 40 mg,(More)
