The experimental examination of microbal origin corrosion aggressivity of karst soils
László Zámbó - (27/1,1998)
One of the major components of the corrosion aggressivity in karst soil is CO2 production in soils. Among the principal mechanisms usually identified as major sources of CO2 production in soils is root respiration. On the influence of microbial activity on the rate of karst corrosion only some estimates are available. To improve estimates and to determine this influence more precisely, experiments were performed. The first results are presented in this paper. From the data gathered it can be concluded that corrosion capacity of microbial origin significantly varies according to the soil type.
