Description/Abstract:
THE ALUNDUM TENSION LYSIMETER ORIGINALLY DESCRIBED WAS MODIFIED TO ALL OW INSTALLATION IN SHALLOW SOILS AND TO FACILITATE COLLECTION OF THE L EACHATE. THE LYSIMETER PLATES WERE LOCATED AT VARIOUS DEPTHS IN TWO CO NTRASING SOIL TYPES TO STUDY THE ION CONTENT OF THE GRAVITATIONAL WATE R. IN ADDITION, THE INFLUENCE OF POTASSIUM (ADDED AS POTASSIUM CHLORID E) AND NITROGEN (ADDED AS AMMONIUM SULFATE) ON ION MOVEMENT IN THE SOI L WAS STUDIED. THE ION CONTENT OF THE GRAVITATIONAL WATER CHANGED MARK EDLY WITH SOIL TYPE, DEPTH, MONTH OF THE YEAR, AND DAILY WEATHER CONDI TIONS. POTASSIUM CHLORIDE AND AMMONIUM SULFATE SOIL ADDITIONS DISTINCT LY ALTERED ESTABLISHED SOIL DYNAMICS, INCREASING MOVEMENT OF OTHER SOI L ELEMENTS INCLUDING THE RADIONUCIDE CESIUM-137 FROM LOCAL FALLOUT IN 1954 ON RONGELAP ATOLL SOILS.
