Soils with high Fe-oxides-hydroxides content). Stevenson (1982) stated that 90% of the N in the surface layer of most soils is organically combined. He defined the following group of forms of organic N in terms of acid hydrolysis fractionation: acid-insoluble N, amino acid N, amino sugar N, and hydrolyzable unknown N (HUN) fraction. The N distribution in soils exhibits a climate effect: a higher percentage of the N in soils occurred as amino acid N and as amino sugar N in the warm climates; lower values were observed at cool temperatures and in the arctic zone.
Beckett and Webster (1971) calculated that the coefficient of variation for organic matter content for a single field will be 25-30%. This variability is apparently inherent to some degree in all field soils. Soil heterogeneity may result, for example, from microrelief effects, natural cracks, inclusion of different materials, variations imparted during formation processes, and from human activity. Soil heterogeneity can affect pollutant behavior in relation to adsorption, transport, and persistence.
02% for total magnesium in soils. Total magnesium in soils increases with increasing clay content. Irrigation with saline water characterized by a high magnesium content can be noted as an anthropogenic source of magnesium in soils, which may affect the soil physical properties and fertility. 5 to 14 cmol kg- 1 with magnesium saturation of the exchange capacity, usually 10-20%. Exchangeable magnesium is usually 20-60% of total magnesium. Soil solution magnesium is in equilibrium with exchangeable magnesium, but aridic soils have soil solutions with much higher solute concentrations due to the lack of natural leaching.
