Title: Genesis of peat-bog soils in the northern taiga spruce forests of the Kola Peninsula

Abstract

The characteristics of soil formation processes in the Peat-Bog soils of waterlogged spruce phytocenoses on the Kola Peninsula are investigated. It is found that the ash composition of the peat layer is determined primarily by the composition of the buried plant residues. The effect of the chemical composition of water feeding the peat bogs is determined. (Refs. 7).

  • It is shown by three graphical methods that ancient biotite aged 5.1.10/sup 9/ yr. and older does not contain excess /sup 40/Ar and that the whole /sup 40/Ar was formed via radioactive decay of /sup 40/K present in the minerals. It is suggested that due to variation in the force of gravitational interaction with the age of the universe, the K-decay of the /sup 40/K nucleus slowed down, which indeed is the cause of enhanced age of the Kola biotite.
  • The methods and results are reported of a spectrometric study, carried out with the SP-3 instrument in Pre-Cambrian fornnations in the northwest ranges of Kola Peninsula for clarification of the radiochemical characteristics of the rocks of the region and of the distribution characteristics of radioactive elements in Cu-Ni mineralizations. It was established that the content of radioactive elements in the rocks varies within a wide interval and corresponds basically to the Vinogradov content. The radioactive element content in typical metamorphic and magmatic complexes and sulfide ores was determined. The spectrometric method can be used for the solution of various geologicalmore » problems. It is particularly useful for studying the separation of strata, the genesis of magmatic and metamorphic complexes, and the metamorphic and geochemical zonality and granitization processes.

  • The methodology used and results obtained in gamma spectrometric studies of pre-Cambrian formations of some nickel-bearing regions of the Kola Penlnsula are described. The radioactive element contents of typical metamorphic and magmatic complexes and sulfide ores are presented. (au-trans)
