Combined Size and Density Fractionation of Soils for Investigations of Organo-Mineral Interactions
JoVE VIDEO JOURNAL, by Fanny Viret and Stephanie Grand
Combined size and density fractionation (CSDF) is a method to physically separate soil into fractions differing in texture (particle size) and mineralogy (density). The purpose is to isolate fractions with different reactivities towards soil organic matter (SOM), in order to better understand organo-mineral interactions and SOM dynamics.
