In their study, [N.sub.2]O emissions from soil were increased 2-3 times by the addition of mineral N fertiliser to two types of soil (Arenosol and Lixisol), but with no significant effect for two other types of soil (Acrisol and Nitisol).

(2018) [54], observed in spiked soils (A horizon of a Haplic Arenosol) with ciprofloxacin that the soil respiration ([O.sub.2] consumption) increased (> 100% respect to control) at lowest concentration (0.1 mg [kg.sup.-1]) and had a significant reduction with 1 mg [kg.sup.-1] concentration.

The soil is classified as Albic Arenosol with 94% sand and 3% silt [19].
The arenosol type of soil dominates the study area, one of the 30 soil groups in the classification system of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
The sandy soil was an arenosol, the sandy-loam was a regosol, while the clay-loam was a phaeozem; typologies were based on previous research performed in the region [13].

5) compiled in 1987-1988, it is possible to conclude that a Eutri-Gleyic Arenosol profile formed on fine Litorina Sea sand and is only about 24 years old as it tends to be developed during the time after the retreat of the Litorina Sea.
