Abstract

Oxidised acid sulfate soils contain significant quantities of potentially mobilised arsenic that may present a hazard to water quality. We evaluated the soluble arsenic concentrations and chemical speciation at a pasture field site (permanently used for cattle grazing) in Murwillumbah, NSW, during a rain event in November-December 2011. The results will quantify the risk of arsenic in acid sulfate environments, identify relationships between arsenic concentrations and ambient water chemistry for risk management.
