    Author(s): S. K. Deb and M. K. ShuklaS. K. Deb and M. K. Shukla

    Dissolved organic matter (DOM) affects several processes in soil and water including nutrient cycling, soil and water pollution and CO2 flux between the soil and atmosphere. The aim of this review is to collate and synthesize the literature on the transport processes of DOM in soil. The DOM normally comprises of only a small fraction of soil organic matter (SOM) and originates mainly from the decomposition and solubilization of SOM, which is accumulated on soil surface or soil profile from plant residues and additions of organic amendments such as animal and poultry manures and other biosolids. The DOM is one of the most reactive and mobile SOM fractions and has a major influence on biogeochemical processes in both terrestrial and aquatic environments. Terrestrially borne DOM is subjected to microbial decomposition, photodegradation and adsorption on soil mineral surfaces. It is sorbe.. Read More»
