The turnover of phosphorus (P) in lake sediments, a major cause of eutrophication and subsequent deterioration of water quality, is in need of deep understanding. In this study, effects of resuspension on P release were studied in cylindrical microcosms with Y-shape apparatus. The results indicated that there was a positive correlation between flux of(More)
Organic amendments have been proposed as a means of remediation for Cd-contaminated soils. However, understanding the inhibitory effects of organic materials on metal immobilization requires further research. In this study colza cake, a typical organic amendment material, was investigated in order to elucidate the ability of this material to reduce toxicity(More)
ICP-MS analytical technology was used to analyze the concentration of 13 heavy metals in surface water, pore water in sediment, suspended particulate matter, and sediment of intertidalite of Tianjin. Results show that both total amount and single concentration of heavy metals vary greatly in different media, the biggest and smallest values differ by 4 or 7(More)
NH4(+)-N and PO4(3-)-P release from the sediment of Fubao Bay in Dianchi Lake were simulated using static incubations of intact sediment cores. The results showed that the releasing rates of sediment NH4(+)-N and PO4(3-)-P were 22.941-163.117 mg x (m2 x d)(-1) and 0.90-2.06 mg x (m2 x d)(-1), respectively, with large variation in different sampling areas.(More)
Organic amendments have been widely proposed as a remediation technology for metal-contaminated soils, but there exist controversial results on their effectiveness. In this study, the effect of pig manure addition on cadmium (Cd) bioavailability in Cd-contaminated soils was systematically evaluated by one dynamic, in situ technique of diffusive gradients in(More)
The distribution characteristic of acid volatile sulfide (AVS), simultaneously extracted metals (SEM), and total metals were studied in the surface and core sediments of Meiliang Bay and Wuli Lake in Taihu Lake. It was found that there were similar distribution characteristics for AVS and SEM in surface sediments, and the concentration of AVS and SEM(More)
This paper has studied the influence of phosphate (Pi, one of inorganic ligands) and citrate (Cit, one of organic ligands) on accumulation and fractionation of REEs in wheat based on aqueous culture, added with extraneous mixed REEs (MRE) and ICP-MS analysis technology. The results show that initial phosphate (Pi) solution of different levels followed by(More)
Solution phosphorus-31 nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (31P-NMR) is a novel technology in characterization of organic phosphorus (P) composition in sediments. This study was aim to refine sample preparation procedures for 31P-NMR, including determination of sample pretreatment, extraction time, sample to extractant ratio and concentration method.(More)
A method was established to measure the concentrations of dissolved reactive phosphate (DRP) and dissolved ferrous iron (Fe) in micro-volume solution samples through colorimetric determination in large batch using a 384-well Microplate Spectrophotometer. Concentrations of DRP and dissolved Fe were determined by the molybdenum blue and phenanthroline(More)
High-resolution pore water equilibrators (HR-Peeper) and diffusive gradients in the thin films ( DGT) technologies were combined to in situ measure soluble reactive phosphorus (c(PW)) and labile phosphorus (C(DGT)) on seven sites in the west of Lake Chaohu. Vertical distributions of c(PW) and c(DGT) in most sediment profiles were similar to a different(More)
