The carbonate content of each soil was determined on duplicate samples using a volumetric calcimeter (Allison and Moodie 1965).
The calcium carbonate contents of the 18 soils, determined using a volumetric calcimeter, are shown in Table 2.
Where appropriate, samples were corrected for carbonate carbon determined by Collins Calcimeter (Loveday and Reeve 1974).
p] horizon; both total and free carbonates were measured by the Bernard calcimeter (Nijensohn and Pizarro 1960; Allison and Moodie 1965).
Total and active carbonates were measured with a Bernard calcimeter and the cation exchange capacity (CEC) was assessed with both the NaOAc (pH 8.
The total organic C content was determined on a microprocessor-controlled induction furnace (LECO CR 12 carbon analyzer, manufactured by the LECO Corporation, USA) as described by Merry and Spouncer (1988) and corrected for carbonate-C determined by a volumetric calcimeter method (Allison and Moodie 1965) where appropriate.
Corrections for carbonate C, determined by Collins calcimeter (Loveday and Reeve 1974), were made where appropriate.
Inorganic C contents, measured using a calcimeter, were only significant in the Two Wells B horizon samples, and were subtracted from the total C contents to obtain organic C contents.
Inorganic carbon (C), measured using a volumetric calcimeter (Allison and Moodie 1965), was only detectable in Two Wells subsoil.
