Documenting Reducing Conditions in Soils:  Martin C. Rabenhorst Environmental Science and Technology University of Maryland Documenting Reducing Conditions in Soils Significance of documenting reducing conditions in soils?:  Significance of documenting reducing conditions in soils? To demonstrate that a soil meets the Technical Standard for Hydric Soils In order to evaluate or test new Field Indicators (FI) for Hydric soils In order to confirm that a soil is hydric in the absence of a Field Indicator (disturbed site) To demonstrate that the soil of a recently created or restored wetland is functioning like a hydric soil Alternate Technologies:  Alternate Technologies Eh measurements with Platinum electrodes (and pH) Time consuming and a bit difficult (especially for the practitioner) Plot on Eh – pH diagrams Considered as “the standard” But there are some unresolved issues regarding exactly what is being measured Multiple electrodes used to improve the statistical reliability.:  Multiple electrodes used to improve the statistical reliability. Redox potential measurement using Pt electrodes Alternate Technologies:  Use of alpha-alpha-dipyridyl Reacts with ferrous Fe+2 forming pink color Difficult to obtain (hazardous) Now available as test papers www.gallard.com Dipyridyl paper, item# 90725                                 Pack Size: box of 200 strips; Hazard Class /UN Number: Not Restricted Storage Temp: Room Temperature Impregnated with a,a’-dipyridyl (= 2,2’-bipyridine), Limit of sensitivity: 2 mg/l Fe 2+ Alternate Technologies IRIS (Indicator of Reduction in Soils) Tubes :  IRIS (Indicator of Reduction in Soils) Tubes Fe Oxide paint is applied to ½ inch schedule 40 PVC tubing while the tube is on a lathe device to ensure an even distribution of the paint. Jenkinson, B. 2002. Indicators of Reduction in Soils (IRIS): A visual method for the identification of hydric soils. Ph.D. Diss. Purdue Univ., West Lafayette, IN Slide7:  Pilot hole made for each IRIS tube IRIS Tubes inserted into the soil Under anaerobic conditions, microbes oxidize OM utilize Fe oxides on IRIS tubes as e- acceptors As Fe(III) in paint is reduced to Fe(II), it dissolves Zones where Fe paint has been removed is visible and can be documented (quantified) Slide8:  Utilization of scanner to collect undistorted images Images must be composited How effective are visual estimates of IRIS paint removal?:  How effective are visual estimates of IRIS paint removal? Slide14:  Where 10% of the iron oxide paint was removed, the soils were reducing in 82% of the sections while in 18% of the cases, the soil was oxidized. Where 20% of the iron oxide paint was removed, the soils were reducing in 89% of the sections while in 11% of the cases, the soil was oxidized. Where 25% of the iron oxide paint was removed, the soils were reducing in 100% of the sections. Percentage of Observations Oxidized or Reduced by the TS Castenson, K. L. and M. C. Rabenhorst. 2006. Indicator of reduction in soil (IRIS): Evaluation of a new approach for assessing reduced conditions in soil. Soil Sci. Soc. Am. J 70: 1222-1226. Slide15:  Jenkinson called for synthesis of ferrihydrite Fe5HO8*4H2O (FeCl3 titrated to pH 7.5 with KOH) Slide16:  We noticed that newly synthesized paint would not adhere well to the PVC. A number of observations led us to postulate that variation in mineralogical composition might affect behavior of the paint. Problem with Newly Synthesized Paint Slide17:  pH 12 pH 11 pH 7.5 pH 4 0.75 0.6 0.5 0.4 0.35 0.3 0.25 0.2 0.15 d-spacing nm Goethite peaks Newly formed Fe oxides (4 days old) 2 broad peaks for ferrihydrite Slide18:  Fe oxides formed by titration to pH 4 or 7.5 remain as essentially entirely oxalate extractable phases over time (confirming dominance of ferrihydrite) When Fe oxides were formed by titration to pH 11 or 12, a substantial portion of the Fe oxides initially were not oxalate extractable (8% and 30% respectively), and they continued to show alteration to more crystalline phases over time pH 4 & 7.5 pH 11 pH 12 Feo/Fet = proportion of Ferrihydrite 1-Feo/Fet = proportion of Goethite Slide19:  1 - paint wipes off when applying very slight pressure 2 - paint wipes off when applying slight pressure 3 - paint wipes off when applying moderate pressure 4 - paint wipes off only when applying firm pressure 5 - paint does not wipe off when applying firm pressure. Abrasion Resistance and Durability Slide20:  Abrasion Resistance Rabenhorst, M. C. and S. N. Burch. 2006. Synthetic Iron Oxides as an Indicator of Reduction in Soils (IRIS). Soil Sci. Soc. Am. J. 70: 1227-1236. Slide21:  What does the goethite do? Slide22:  200 X 1000 X 5000 X 25000 X 200 um 20 um 1 um 4 um 15% Goethite; 85% Ferrihydrite 1:5.7 Durability Index = 1 to 2 Slide23:  200 X 1000 X 25000 X 100 um 20 um 1 um 8 um 5000 X 44% Goethite; 54% Ferrihydrite 1:1.3 Durability Index = 5 Slide24:  The lath-shaped goethite crystals are prevalent and appear to form a reinforcing network. analogous to the common (19th century) practice of masons adding some strong fibrous material to plaster such as hair or hemp or the ancient practice of adding straw to clay when making bricks to increase their strength and cohesion. Thus, the growth of lath-shaped goethite crystals within the Fe oxide mixture appears to contribute strength and cohesion of the material. What do the variations in color represent? Partial removal of Fe Oxides:  What do the variations in color represent? Partial removal of Fe Oxides -10 -5 0 5 10 velocity (mm/s) (Total Counts) / (Baseline counts) – 1.0 Reference Goethite Blank (peak from Fe in detector window) Sample from “yellow” area on IRIS tube RICH IN GOETHITE Slide26:  Means of four replicate analyses Red Yellow Rabenhorst, M.

GOETHITE Next Question:  Next Question Does the mineralogical composition of the paint affect how IRIS tubes will behave in the soil? We know we need 30-40% goethite for good durability of the paint, but does the proportion of goethite relative to ferrihydrite make any difference in how they function? Rabenhorst, M. C., R. R. Blank, and B. R. James. 2006. Reduction of Iron Oxides in Wetland Soils. 18th World Congress of Soil Science, Philadelphia, PA. July 9-15, 2006. Slide28:  Mesocosms filled with two different soil materials (Indiantown A horizon and Berryland A horizon) and each containing 36 IRIS tubes representing 4 replicates of 9 different paints Target – 40-60% goethite; 60-40 % ferrihydrite How then to increase “pot life”of the paint:  Target – 40-60% goethite; 60-40 % ferrihydrite How then to increase “pot life”of the paint Slide31:  Estimates of Goethite content based upon peak heights Conclusions:  Conclusions We know how to make IRIS tubes We know how to synthesize the paint so that it will adhere, and we know why it adheres We know what the variations in color represent We know that mineralogical composition affects performance We know how to preserve “pot life” of the paint to slow mineralogical change We know how to interpret removal of the paint with respect to the Technical Standard of NTCHS. We know how to use them – Protocol to be covered in workshop Slide33:  finis
