Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate the potential of SEM/EDS analysis (scanning electron microscopy/energy dispersive spectrometry) to fingerprint two types of topsoil in a research basin: a black, chernozemic, farmland soil and a grey, podzolic, forest soil. The two simulated suspended sediment samples were similar in particle size distribution, mineralogy, and total chemistry, but an important difference was the morphology of the clay class particles, consisting of water-stable clay aggregates
