A Geochemical Study of Greenstones in The Stowe Formation North of Waterbury, Vermont

Basic Information
Author: Perry, D. A.
Description:Sediment parameters measured include: total P, organic P, and available P, iron, organic matter, grain size and Eh. The data suggest that phosphorus concentrations are related to (1) release of phosphorus by decomposition of organic matter, (2) adsorption/desorption reactions with iron hydroxides, (3) precipitation of iron as iron phosphate, (4) diffusion of phosphorus through sediment pore waters, (5) deposition of p associated with organic matter and adsorbed onto clays, and (6) anthropogenic loading. Student paper presented in the Vermont Geological Society quarterly newsletter - Green Mountain Geologist, Spring 1983. Volume 10, Number 1, page 14 of 84 in PDF.
