Northeastern New Brunswick soil survey, 1960 and 1961

Project Description

The purpose of this project was to determine the amount, nature and location of several trace elements and their compounds in a number of soil horizon samples from northeastern New Brunswick.  Soil profiles were collected at 80 locations in 1960 and 1961.  Analyses were done for pH, organic carbon, Cu, Pb, Zn, As, Sb, Fe, Mn, Ag, Sn, and Cd.  Detailed studies carried out on six selected projects included determinations of cation exchange capacity, percentage composition, mineralogy, water-soluble metal, dilute acid-soluble metal, metal associated with organic matter and metal associated with free iron oxides.  The data are published in E.W. Presant’s Carleton University MSc. thesis, 1963.
