2001), also using Mossbauer spectroscopy, for the Hula valley soils in Israel, in a quite different context from this work.
It appears to us that the definitive experiments are the low (liquid nitrogen) temperature Mossbauer spectroscopy experiments, which can detect and differentiate the iron-iron oxide species of interest even at extremely small particle sizes.
The distinction of these 2 species in soil samples by Mossbauer spectroscopy is impractical when this concurrence of signals and the already mentioned line broadening are taken into account.
Conversion electron (back-scattered) Mossbauer spectroscopy (EMS) is much more surface sensitive than the conventional transmission technique and has been used to examine passive oxide films on iron.
