${session.getAttribute("locale")} 5 Distribution of arsenic and heavy metals in soils and surface waters in Central Victoria (Ballarat, Creswick and Maldon) Wed 07 Apr 2021 13:32:06 AEST ]]> Clay mineralogy of central Victorian (Creswick) soils : Clay mineral contents as a possible tool of environmental indicator smectite > mixed-layer (ML) ≈ vermiculite. The soil clay mineralogy did not change systematically with depth (0- 10, 10- 20 and 20- 30 cm) and showed large variations spatially. The high proportion of kaolinite was probably due to the removal of 2:1 phyllosilicates by the formation of 1:1 kaolinite through weathering, which also reduced the cation exchange capacity (CEC) and electrical conductivity (EC, soil: water ratio of 1:5) of soils by aging. Soils were classified as silty loam to loam with a low clay size (≤ 2]]> Wed 07 Apr 2021 13:31:51 AEST ]]>
