Contamination of agricultural soils with Cu as a result of fungicide application and spills threatens environmental quality and reduces soil quality for crop growth. In this paper advanced spectroscopic and microscopic methods were used to elucidate the Cu speciation in a calcareous soil contaminated since the 1940s. Microscopically focused synchrotron-based XRF (micro-SXRF) was used to map the elemental distribution in the soils. Results indicated that most of the Cu was not associated with… CONTINUE READING
