Soil of Oil Deposits in the Middle Taiga of West Siberia and the Predictive Estimate of the Danger of Pollution with Organic Pollutants

1 Tomsk State University
2 Public Corporation TomskNIPIneft
Keywords: soil, landscape-geochemical systems, oil deposits, middle taiga, properties, stability
Pages: 617-623

Abstract >>
Regularities of the distribution of background soil of oil deposits in the middle taiga of West Siberia were studied. The features of morphogenetic and physicochemical properties of soils were revealed. It was proved experimentally that the danger of soil pollution with oil components depends on the position of soil in the elementary landscape-geochemical systems (ELGS), on the granulometric composition and buffer capacity. The results may be used to perform soil ecological monitoring and soil revegetation.

V. N. Sukachev Institute of Forest SB RAS,,
Keywords: water-extractable organic carbon, permafrost, ground fire, organic matter, forest litter, soil
Pages: 625-632

Abstract >>
Fire influence on the water-extractable organic carbon (WEOC) content in litters and soil profile of post-fire associations under the conditions of permafrost soil of different ages (1, 11, 15, 24, and 54 years) was studied. It was shown that the ground fires cause significant decrease in the content of water-soluble fraction of organic matter in litters and top 5 cm layer of soil in mounds, which most strongly experience the action of fire. In deeper soil horizons, the differences in WEOC content between intact stands and post-fire areas were not detected.

Keywords: soil, humus profile, evolution, models of soil formation
Pages: 633-640

Abstract >>
Humus profiles of soil in Siberia under different conditions and models of soil formation are considered. It is shown that the humus profiles of soil formed in the regions of shifts of landscape and soil borders and developing according to the polygenetic model, as well as the soils of syn-lithogenous type of pedogenesis, have a complicated structure. Simple structure of the humus profile characterizes the kinds of soil developing within the framework of a simple (ideal, normal) model of soil formation.

Keywords: ripple-seed plantain, Plantago major L., soil, mobile forms, heavy metals, chlorophyll, polysaccharides
Pages: 677-688

Abstract >>
The data are presented concerning the amount of mobile compounds of chemical elements (ChE) in soils under various kinds of human impact (acetate-ammonium buffer at pH 4,8) and the plants of ripple-seed plantain (Plantago major L.) (extracting agents such as diluted 1:1 HCl, 10 % HCl, distilled H2O). The content of total ash, mineral admixtures of soil origin, water-soluble forms of ChE, polysaccharides and chlorophyll were determined in plants.

Institute of Soil Science and Agrochemistry SB RAS
Keywords: primary succession, phytocoenosis, sand and sabulous pits, northern taiga, West Siberia
Pages: 697-705

Abstract >>
Changes of plant communities in sand and sabulous pits during overgrowing for different time intervals in the northern taiga of West Siberia were studied during the recent 13 years. It was demonstrated that at the first stage of overgrowing the species composition of the communities depends on the physical properties of the ground. Either grass or woody species dominate at this stage. Later on, the change of phytocoenoses leads to the development of the forest community of the zonal or derived type. The time of the appearance of the forest phytocoenosis depends on chance factors.

Pages: 753-763

Abstract >>
Forms of zinc compounds in light-chestnut soil under pollution with zinc, copper, cadmium, lead introduced separately and jointly were studied. It was discovered that for any kinds of pollution the initial relations between the forms of an element change. With an increase in the level of pollution, for all its kinds, accumulation of the most mobile forms of zinc in the soil is observed. It was revealed that ion exchange has the highest significance in the fixation of zinc in polluted soil.
