The objective of this research was to better understand cadmium (Cd) mobility in an organic-rich, boreal soil. Cadmium was selected for the study because of its tendency to be more mobile in soils than other heavy metals, such as lead or mercury. The release of metals from soil is a concern for northern regions where soils are gradually warming, resulting in an increased rate of natural organic matter (NOM) decomposition and soil erosion. Soil samples were collected from three principle soil… CONTINUE READING
