Selenium (Se) occurs in a wide variety of oxidation states and is a common element present in sedimentary geologic materials such as shale. Phosphate mining activities in southeastern Idaho have left shale materials near the surface, thus releasing the natural Se into a new weathering environment. In this study we are investigating the biogeochemistry of Se at remediated phosphate mining sites. Soil samples were collected from the rhizosphere of remediated sites and analyzed using… CONTINUE READING
