Exposure to Light Elicits a Spectrum of Chemical Changes in Soil

The significance of photochemically active solar radiation is well substantiated in Earth's air and water environments, but no broad connection has yet been ascertained between sunlight and the

Photon-Driven Nitrogen Fixation: Current Progress, Thermodynamic Considerations, and Future Outlook

Over the last century, the industrialization of agriculture and the consumption of fossil fuels have resulted in a significant imbalance and redistribution in nitrogen-containing resources. This has

A survey of photogeochemistry

TLDR
A compilation of known reactions shows the extent of light-driven interactions between naturally occurring components of land, air, and water, and provides the backdrop for an outline of the mechanisms of these phenomena.

TLDR
The high nitrate content generally found in the surface of tropical soils after a dry period is due to capillary movement upwards of nitrate formed biologically in the subsurface during periods of adequate water content.

Distribution and management of drylands in the People's Republic of China

The drylands, referred to in this review as arid and semiarid lands, as well as subhumid lands prone to drought, are widely distributed in China. The arid and semiarid areas cover 52.2% of its total

THE MECHANISM OF SURFACE NITRATE ACCUMULATION ON A BARE FALLOW SOIL IN UGANDA

Summary In a red latosol loam under bare fallow at Kawanda, Uganda, nitrate accumulates to as much as 70 p.p.m, nitrate nitrogen during short periods of dry weather. Nitrate accumulation appears
