Soil Quality - Determination of Organic and Total Carbon After Dry Combustion (Elementary Analysis)
|Publication Date:||1 January 1995|
|ICS Code (Chemical characteristics of soils):||13.080.10|
This International Standard specifies a method for the determination of the total carbon content in soil after dry combustion. The organic carbon content is calculated from this content after correcting for carbonates present in the sample. If carbonates are removed beforehand, the organic carbon content is measured directly.
This International Standard is applicable to all types of air-dried soil samples.
