  • Speciation and spatial distribution of Cr in chromite ore processing
           residue site, Yunnan, China
    • Authors: Guangzhu Zhou; Xin Yin; Jing Zhou; Weiyu Cheng
      Pages: 291 - 297
      Abstract: Remediation of COPR sites requires the key information including chromium oxidation, speciation and spatial distribution. Samples were gathered from a COPR site in Luliang County in Qujing, Yunnan Province of China. The total Cr, Cr(VI) and chromium species were investigated. Results indicated the concentration of total Cr was between 110.5 and 21,774 mg/kg, and the concentration of Cr(VI) was between 0.1 and 1075 mg/kg. The map of total-Cr and ratio of Cr(VI)/total-Cr (%) showed that the maximum of total-Cr and Cr(VI) appeared in the layers near the surface. In the horizontal direction, the pollution was more serious in the middle and southeast part than that in the west. Additionally, acid extractable chromium increased in the layers at depth from −0.3 to −2.0 m, and it decreased in the deeper layers. There was a trend that the movable Cr(VI) migrated to the deeper layers, and then it turned into Cr(III). Water played an important role for the Cr distribution. Cr(VI) in COPR released to the soil solution after rainfall, and then gravity led the solution down to the deeper layers. After repeated rainfall and leaching, Cr(VI) moved to the deeper soil layers. Due to capillarity and evaporation, Cr(VI) migrated and was enriched at the surface layer. Therefore, measures on controlling water movement should be taken in the remediation of the COPR site.

  • Boron isotope geochemistry of Zigetang Co saline lake sediments, Tibetan
    • Authors: Xiaodan Wang; Congqiang Liu; Zhiqi Zhao; Shijie Li; Gangjian Wei
      Abstract: The origin of boron in boron-rich salt lakes in the Tibetan Plateau is highly controversial. In this study, we carried out a detailed study on boron geochemistry and isotope composition of lake sediments collected in Zigetang Co, central Tibet. Evaporites had high boron concentrations of 172.3–418.6 μg/g and δ11B values of −8.2‰ to −3.3‰, suggesting a non-marine origin for the saline lake. The boron isotopic fractionation factor, α, between evaporite and brackish water (αevaporite–brackish) decreased systematically with depth, from 0.9942 at the top of the drill core to 0.9893 at the bottom; the linear variation between αevaporite–brackish and depth reflects boron isotopic fractionation associated with progressive crystallization. The positive correlation between δ11B versus [B] and δ11B versus depth in the evaporite phase reflects pH and boron speciation in the solution control on the adsorption of boron, and B(OH)3 species incorporated preferentially into Mg(OH)2 precipitation at high pH.

  • An EXAFS investigation of the mechanism of competitive sorption between
           Co(II) and Ni(II) at γ-alumina/solution interface
    • Authors: Wenxian Gou; Junfeng Ji; Wei Li
      Abstract: Co(II) and Ni(II) are two common toxic heavy metals, and may simultaneously exist in contaminated water, soil, and sediment systems in Earth’s surface environment. Under this circumstance, competitive adsorption between the two metals may influence their migration, toxicity, and bioavailability. In this research, the competitive sorption of Co(II) and Ni(II) on γ-Al2O3 was studied using both macroscopic sorption experiments and extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) spectroscopy. Results suggest that Ni(II) reduced the amount of Co(II) sorption in a binary-solute system at pH 6.0. This is because both Co(II) and Ni(II) form inner-sphere surface complexes during sorption on γ-Al2O3 and compete for the surface reactive sites. However, Co(II) exhibited a negligible influence on sorption amount of Ni(II) under the same conditions, which suggests Ni(II) has a stronger affinity to alumina surface. At pH 7.5, Co(II) and Ni(II) sorption density were much higher than that at pH 6.0, but there no mutual competitive effect was observed. EXAFS analysis further revealed that formation of layered double-hydrated precipitates was the dominant sorption mechanism for both Co(II) and Ni(II) at pH 7.5. Because this type of sorption does not rely on surface reactive sites, there was no competition between Co(II) and Ni(II). This finding sheds light on risk assessment and remediation of Ni/Co pollution.

  • Low net primary productivity of dominant tree species in a karst forest,
           southwestern China: first evidences from tree ring width and girth
    • Authors: Jian Ni; Haiyang Xu; Libin Liu
      Abstract: Aboveground net primary productivity (ANPP) of two dominant species, one deciduous tree (Platycarya strobilacea) and one evergreen tree (Machilus cavaleriei), was estimated based on the tree-ring width and the girth increment as well as allometric functions in a karst evergreen and deciduous broadleaved mixed forest in central Guizhou Province, southwestern China. Results showed that the ANPP increased from 1961 to 2015, especially during the last 20–30 years, but with strong variations. The deciduous tree had higher ANPP than the evergreen tree according to two kinds of estimates by the tree ring and girth increment. The averaged ANPP for these two mature trees was 2.27 kg/individual/year, ca. 8 t/ha/year considering the normal stand density. Such karst forest productivity was lower than the natural subtropical forests in China and in the world.

  • Influence on lacustrine source rock by hydrothermal fluid: a case study of
           the Chang 7 oil shale, southern Ordos Basin
    • Authors: Delu Li; Rongxi Li; Zengwu Zhu; Xiaoli Wu; Futian Liu; Bangsheng Zhao; Baoping Wang
      Abstract: Hydrothermal fluid activity during sedimentation of the Triassic Yanchang Formation in the Ordos Basin and the impact of said activity on formation and preservation conditions of source rocks have received little attention. Oil yield, major element, trace element, rare earth element, and total sulfur (TS) data from the oil shale within the Yanchang are here presented and discussed in the context of hydrothermal influence. Oil shale samples returned relatively high total organic carbon (TOC), in the range of 4.69%–25.48%. A high correlation between TS and TOC suggests TS in the oil shale is dominated by organic sulfur and affected by organic matter. The low Al/Si ratio of oil shale samples implies quartz is a major mineralogical component. Si/(Si + Al + Fe) values suggest close proximity of the oil shale to a terrigenous source. δEu; Fe versus Mn versus (Cu + Co + Ni) × 10; and SiO2/(K2O + Na2O) versus MnO/TiO2, Fe/Ti, and (Fe + Mn)/Ti are evidence of hydrothermal fluid activity during oil shale sedimentation, and δU and U/Th of the oil shale indicate reducing conditions. The Sr/Ba of oil shale samples suggests fresh-water deposition. The high correlations of Fe/Ti and (Fe + Mn)/Ti with δU, U/Th, and TS demonstrate that hydrothermal fluid activity promotes reducing conditions. Sr/Ba ratios had low correlation with Fe/Ti and (Fe + Mn)/Ti, implying that hydrothermal fluid activity had little impact on paleosalinity. Fe/Ti, (Fe + Mn)/Ti, δU, U/Th, and Cu + Pb + Zn all exhibited high positive correlation coefficients with TOC in oil shale samples, suggesting that more intense hydrothermal fluid activity improves conditions in favor of formation and preservation of organic matter.

  • Temporal and spatial characteristics of dissolved organic carbon in the
           Wujiang River, Southwest China
    • Authors: Xi Peng; Baoli Wang; Yanchuang Zhao
      Abstract: River systems play an important role in the global carbon cycle. Rivers transport carbon to the ocean and also affect the carbon cycle in the coastal ocean. The flux from land to the ocean is thought to be a very important part of the land carbon budget. To investigate the effect of dam-building on dissolved organic carbon (DOC) in rivers, three reservoirs of different trophic states in the Wujiang basin, Guizhou Province, were sampled twice per month between May 2011 and May 2012. Temporal and spatial distributions of DOC in the reservoirs and their released waters were studied. It was found that different factors controlled DOC in river water, reservoir water, and released water. DOC in the rivers tended to be affected by primary production. For reservoirs, the main controlling factors of DOC concentration varied by trophic state. For the mesotrophic Hongjiadu Reservoir, the effect of primary production on DOC concentration was obvious. For the eutrophic Dongfengdu Reservoir and the hypereutrophic Wujiangdu Reservoir, primary production was not significant and DOC came instead from soil and plant litter.

  • A study of groundwater irrigation water quality in south-central
           Bangladesh: a geo-statistical model approach using GIS and multivariate
    • Authors: M. Atikul Islam; Md. Mostafizur Rahman; Md. Bodrud-Doza; Md. Iftakharul Muhib; Mashura Shammi; Anwar Zahid; Yeasmin Akter; Masaaki Kurasaki
      Abstract: Southern Bangladesh’s irrigation and drinking water is threatened by saline intrusion. This study aimed to establish an irrigation water quality index (IWQI) using a geostatistical model and multivariate indices in Gopalganj district, south-central Bangladesh. Groundwater samples were taken randomly (different depths) in two seasons (wet-monsoon and dry-monsoon). Hydrochemical analysis revealed groundwater in this area was neutral to slightly alkaline and dominating cations were Na+, Mg2+, and Ca2+ along with major anions Cl− and HCO3 −. Principal component analysis and Gibbs plot helped explain possible geochemical processes in the aquifer. The irrigation water evaluation indices showed: electrical conductivity (EC) >750 µS/cm, moderate to extreme saline; sodium adsorption ratio (SAR), excellent to doubtful; total hardness (TH), moderate to very hard; residual sodium bicarbonate, safe to marginal; Kelly’s ratio >1; soluble sodium percentage (SSP), fair to poor; magnesium adsorption ratio, harmful for soil; and IWQI, moderate to suitable. In addition, the best fitted semivariogram for IWQI, EC, SAR, SSP, and TH confirmed that most parameters had strong spatial dependence and others had moderate to weak spatial dependence. This variation might be due to the different origin/sources of major contributing ions along with the influence of variable river flow and small anthropogenic contributions. Furthermore, the spatial distribution maps for IWQI, EC, SSP, and TH during both seasons confirmed the influence of salinity from the sea; low-flow in the major river system was the driving factor of overall groundwater quality in the study area. These findings may contribute to management of irrigation and/or drinking water in regions with similar groundwater problems.

  • Elemental characteristics and paleoenvironment reconstruction: a case
           study of the Triassic lacustrine Zhangjiatan oil shale, southern Ordos
           Basin, China
    • Authors: Delu Li; Rongxi Li; Zengwu Zhu; Xiaoli Wu; Futian Liu; Bangsheng Zhao; Jinghua Cheng; Baoping Wang
      Abstract: Using trace elements to reconstruct paleoenvironment is a current hot topic in geochemistry. Through analytical tests of oil yield, ash yield, calorific value, total sulfur, major elements, trace elements, and X-ray diffraction, the quality, mineral content, occurrence mode of elements, and paleoenvironment of the Zhangjiatan oil shale of the Triassic Yanchang Formation in the southern Ordos Basin were studied. The analyses revealed relatively high oil yield (average 6.63%) and medium quality. The mineral content in the oil shale was mainly clay minerals, quartz, feldspar, and pyrite; an illite–smectite mixed layer comprised the major proportion of clay minerals. Compared with marine oil shale in China, the Zhangjiatan oil shale had higher contents of quartz, feldspar, and clay minerals, and lower calcite content. Silica was mainly in quartz and Fe was associated with organic matter, which is different from marine oil shale. The form of calcium varied. Cluster analyses indicated that Fe, Cu, U, V, Zn, As, Cs, Cd, Mo, Ga, Pb, Co, Ni, Cr, Sc, P, and Mn are associated with organic matter while Ca, Na, Sr, Ba, Si, Zr, K, Al, B, Mg, and Ti are mostly terrigenous. Sr/Cu, Ba/Al, V/(V + Ni), U/Th, AU, and δU of oil shale samples suggest the paleoclimate was warm and humid, paleoproductivity of the lake was relatively high during deposition of the shale—which mainly occurred in fresh water—and the paleo-redox condition was dominated by reducing conditions. Fe/Ti ratios of the oil shale samples suggest clear hydrothermal influence in the eastern portion of the study area and less conspicuous hydrothermal influence in the western portion.

  • Effects of Cd on reductive transformation of lepidocrocite by Shewanella
           oneidensis MR-1
    • Authors: Chaolei Yuan; Fangbai Li; Rui Han; Tongxu Liu; Weimin Sun; Weilin Huang
      Abstract: We investigated the reduction of lepidocrocite (γ-FeOOH) by Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 in the presence and absence of Cd. The results showed that Cd2+ retarded microbial reduction of γ-FeOOH and avoided formation of magnetite. The inhibitory effect on γ-FeOOH transformation may not result from Cd2+ toxicity to the bacterium; it rather was probably due to competitive adsorption between Cd2+ and Fe2+ on γ-FeOOH as its surface reduction catalyzed by adsorbed Fe2+ was eliminated by adsorption of Cd2+.

    • Authors: Fushun Wang; Baoli Wang; Tao Zhou; Tianyu Chen; Jing Ma
      Abstract: In order to understand the effect of river impoundment on carbon dynamics, a large reservoir in a subtropical area, the Xinanjiang Reservoir, was investigated in detail. CO2 emissions from the water–air interface was studied, as was organic carbon burial in sediment. The results show a significant seasonal difference in CO2 emissions. River impoundment led to the enhancement of aquatic photosynthesis, generating large amounts of authigenic organic carbon that was then buried in sediment.

  • Effects of topography and vegetation on distribution of rare earth
           elements in calcareous soils
    • Authors: Zhaoliang Song; Yuntao Wu; Xiaomin Yang; Zijuan Xu; Linan Liu; Xiaodong Zhang; Qian Hao; Shaobo Sun; Guilin Han; Congqiang Liu
      Abstract: This study investigated the impact of topography and vegetation on distribution of rare earth elements (REEs) in calcareous soils using methods of single extraction and mass balance calculation. The purposes of the study were to set a basis for further research on the biogeochemical REE cycle and to provide references for soil–water conservation and REE-containing fertilizer amendments. The results show a generally flat Post-Archean Average Australian Shale—normalized REE pattern for the studied calcareous soils. REE enrichment varied widely. The proportion of acid-soluble phases of heavy REEs was higher than that of light REEs. From top to bottom of the studied hills, dominant REE sources transitioned from limestone in-situ weathering to input from REE-containing phases (e.g., clay minerals, amorphous iron, REE-containing fluids). Our results indicate that the REE content of calcareous soils is mainly controlled by slope aspect, while the enrichment degree of REEs is related to geomorphological position and vegetation type. Furthermore, the proportion of acid-soluble phases of REEs is mainly controlled by geomorphological position.

  • Geochemistry and petrology of rift-related mafic sills and arc-related
           Gabbro–Diorite bodies, Northern Bafq District, Central Iran
    • Authors: S. M. Niktabar; N. Rashidnejad Omran
      Abstract: Two types of mafic intrusions have been recognized in the north of the Bafq district, Central Iran. A number of olivine-gabbroic to gabbroic sills intruded the Rizu Formation, comprised of alternating carbonate and volcanic rocks. Mineralogical data show that olivine + pyroxene + brown amphibole (kaersutite) + calcic plagioclase + opaque comprise the olivine-gabbroic rocks, and intermediate (or sodic) plagioclase + altered pyroxene and altered amphibole to biotite + opaque minerals the gabbroic rocks. Both rock types have shown within-plate and alkaline characters and have been presumed to be related to rift formation. The mafic-alkaline magma source of the sills is proposed to have been derived from enriched mantle. Regionally, two Gabbro–Diorite intrusions have been identified in the metamorphic complexes. Mineralogical data suggest that the pyroxene + amphibole (hornblende) + plagioclase + biotite + opaque minerals formed the gabbro to diorite intrusions. These rocks have shown characteristics of calc-alkaline and volcanic arc magmatism.

  • Effects of slope position and land use on the stability of
           aggregate-associated organic carbon in calcareous soils
    • Authors: Man Liu; Guilin Han; Zichuan Li; Taoze Liu; Xiaomin Yang; Yuntao Wu; Zhaoliang Song
      Abstract: Topography and land use affect soil organic carbon (SOC) storage, stabilization, and turnover, through several biogeochemical processes. This study investigated the aggregate composition and SOC content of bulk soils and aggregates at different slope positions under different land uses in a typical karst catchment of southwestern China. Our results show that the proportion of macro-aggregates and the SOC content of bulk soils and aggregates at different slope positions decreased from the upper to the lower slope. The SOC content generally increased with an increase in the mean weight diameter and proportion of macro-aggregates under different land uses. Our results indicate that macro-aggregates in forest and grassland soils make a greater contribution to both aggregate composition and SOC content than that in arable land soils. Therefore, converting farmland to forest or grassland can facilitate the accumulation of macro-aggregates as well as the storage of SOC.

  • Rare earth element chemistry indicates chemical alteration of zircons
           during the evolution of weathering profile
    • Authors: Ni Su; Shouye Yang; Wei Yue
      Abstract: Although rare earth elements (REEs) in magmatic zircons have been widely used to identify the type and compositional evolution of host rocks, REE distribution patterns during the chemical alteration of zircons need clarification. We investigated REE characteristics in zircons with different degrees of chemical weathering through systematic observation of a granodiorite-weathering profile in southeast China. Despite the relatively stable provenance of the studied profile (zircon U–Pb ages are 95.2 ± 4.8 Ma), the zircon REEs exhibited systematic differences in abundance and fractionation patterns from the bedrock to upper layers, e.g. ∑REE, (LREE/HREE)CN, and Ce/Ce*. This evidence suggests chemical alteration of zircons during intensive chemical weathering and an expected influence on REE variability in the weathered products due to the presence of REE-bearing minerals.

  • Source and composition of sedimentary organic matter in the head of Three

           lipid biomarker analyses
    • Authors: He Ding; Changfeng Zhu; Kai Zhang; Shangbin Xiao; Xingqian Cui; Yongge Sun
      Abstract: A multiproxy approach including bulk organic carbon, δ13C, lignin phenols, and lipid biomarker analyses were applied to characterize the source and composition of sedimentary organic matter in the head part of Three Gorges Reservoir. OM consisted of both natural (autochthonous and allochthonous) and anthropogenic inputs. The natural OM included input from vascular plants, especially non-woody angiosperms. The allochthonous input included plankton and microbial production, likely due to localized eutrophication. Anthropogenic inputs likely derived from petroleum input and/or urban activities. Other anthropogenic inputs were untreated sewage waste. These influences were concluded to be regionally specific point sources of pollution based on relative distributions and on the fact that molecular characteristics of sedimentary OM were not distributed smoothly along a gradient.

  • Diffusion in garnet: a review
    • Authors: Bowen Li; Jianhua Ge; Baohua Zhang
      Abstract: With improvements on high-pressure experimental techniques in multi-anvil apparatus and the development of new analytical tools, major progress has been made on diffusion in garnets in the past several decades. The data obtained in the experimental determination of diffusion coefficients in garnets are of fundamental importance for diffusion modeling and timescales of geological and planetary processes. In this review, we have compiled experimental data on self-diffusion (Si, O, cations), trace element diffusion (Li, Y, Ga, Cr, Sr, REEs), and interdiffusion (Ca–Fe/Mg, Si–Al) in garnet in the light of new advances and recent applications. In addition, some empirical relationships among diffusion parameters (pre-exponential factor D 0, activation energy E, ionic radius) are also discussed. We hope that this review can provide a useful data digest and guide to future study of diffusion in garnet.

  • Origin of C type adakite magmas in the NE Xing’an block, NE China
           and tectonic implication
    • Authors: Changzhou Deng; Guangyi Sun; Deyou Sun; Hu Huang; Jianfeng Zhang; Jun Gou
      Abstract: In this paper, we report new whole-rock geochemical and zircon U–Pb data for monzogranites in the NE Xing’an block. These data constrained the petrogenesis of C type (high Sr/Y) adakitic rocks and showed the spatial extent of the influence of the Mongol-Okhostsk ocean tectonic regime and the collision between the Jiamusi Massif and Songliao Terrane. New zircon laser-ablation inductivity coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) U–Pb data indicated that the monzogranites in the studied area were emplaced in the Early Jurassic (~180 Ma). These rocks were characterized by unusally high SiO2 (≥67.49), and Sr (461–759 ppm), but strikingly low Y (4.63–8.06 ppm) and HREE (∑HREE = 3.83–6.49 ppm, Yb = 0.5–0.77 ppm) contents, with therefore high Sr/Y (67.2–119) and (La/Yb)N (29.7–41.5) ratios, showing the geochemical characteristics of C type adakitic granite. The data displayed negligible Eu anomalies (Eu/Eu* = 0.77–1.08), LREE-enriched and pronounced negative Nb and Ta anomalies. The C-type adakites in the studied area were most likely derived from the partial melting of a thickened lower continental curst. The magma source is most likely dominated by amphibolites and garnet amphibolites. In combination with previously-reported data from igneous rocks from the Mesozoic in NE China, we conclude that the Xing’an block was influenced by the Mongol-Okhotsk subduction tectonic system, and experiences compressive settings from the amalgamation of the Jiamusi block in the east of the CAOB.

  • The influence of urbanization on karst rivers based on nutrient
           concentration and nitrate dual isotopes: an example from southwestern
    • Authors: Zhong-Jun Wang; Fu-Jun Yue; Jie Zeng; Si-Liang Li
      Abstract: China is experiencing rapid urbanization that has changed the water quality of rivers, especially nutrient loads. In this study, a typical urban river located in a karst area, Chengguan River, was chosen to explore the influence of urbanization on river ecosystems based on nutrient concentration and nitrate isotopes. The results show monthly variability of water chemistry and nutrient concentration. Nutrient concentration in two tributaries and the mainstem showed significant spatial variability, with heavy N and P pollution in one tributary near a suburban area, indicating a response to different levels of urbanization. Measurements of nitrate dual isotopes suggest that volatilization, assimilation, nitrification, and denitrification all occur in the polluted river. Water chemistry and nitrate isotopes show that major nitrogen sources included domestic waste and agricultural input, such as chemical fertilizer and manure. The results suggest that urbanization increases nutrient concentrations and accelerates the riverine nitrogen dynamic, and point to the need to manage point sources of sewage effluents to improve the water quality of urban rivers in southwestern China.

  • Ecosystem service delivery in Karst landscapes: anthropogenic perturbation
           and recovery

      Abstract: Covering extensive parts of China, Karst landscapes are exceptional because rapid and intensive land use change has caused severe ecosystem degradation within only the last 50 years. The twentieth century intensification in food production through agriculture has led to a rapid deterioration of soil quality, evidenced in reduced crop production and rapid loss of soil. In many areas, a tipping point appears to have been passed as basement rock is exposed and ‘rocky desertification’ dominates. Through the establishment of the “Soil processes and ecological services in the karst critical zone of SW China” (SPECTRA) Critical Zone Observatory (CZO) we will endevaour to understand the fundmental processes involved in soil production and erosion, and investigate the integrated geophysical-geochemical-ecological responses of the CZ to perturbations. The CZ spans a gradient from undisturbed natural vegetation through human perturbed landscapes. We seek to understand the importance of heterogeneity in surface and below-ground morphology and flow pathways in determining the spatial distribution of key stocks (soil, C, vegetation, etc.) and their control on ecosystem service delivery. We will assess the extent to which the highly heterogeneous critical zone resources can be restored to enable sustainable delivery of ecosystem services. This paper presents the CZO design and initial assessment of soil and soil organic carbon stocks and evidence for their stability based on caesium-137 (137Cs) data.

  • Revisiting the dissolution of biogenic Si in marine sediments: a key term
           in the ocean Si budget
    • Authors: Patrick Frings
      Abstract: Of the ~240 × 1012 mol year−1 of biogenic silica (bSi) produced by diatoms and other silicifying organisms, only roughly 3%–4% escapes dissolution to be permanently buried. At the global scale, how, where and why bSi is preserved in sediment is not well understood. To help address this, I compile 6245 porewater dissolved Si concentrations from 453 sediment cores, to derive the concentration gradient at the sediment–water interface and thus diffusive fluxes out of the sediment. These range from <0.002 to 3.4 mol m−2 year−1, and are independent of temperature, depth and latitude. When classified by sediment lithology, predominantly siliceous sediments unsurprisingly have higher mean diffusive fluxes than predominantly calcareous or clay-rich sediment. Combined with the areal extent of these lithologies, the ‘best-guess’ global sedimentary bSi recycling flux is 69 × 1012 mol year−1.
