  • Changes in concentration ofdissolved organic carbon (DOC) reflectbiogeochemical processes that determinechemical composition of groundwater and othernatural waters. We found that the deeper thevadose zone, the lower the concentration of DOCin groundwater near the water table, indicatingthat considerable attenuation ofsurface-derived DOC occurred in the vadosezone. Under vadose zones <1.25 m, DOCconcentrations at the surface of the watertable ranged to >20 mg C l−1, while forvadose zones >5.0 m… CONTINUE READING
