This difference can be attributed to the fact that the effects of water erosion and chemical eluviation due to water flow were not eliminated in the study conducted by Singh et al.
In addition, N absorption by sugarcane as well as decreased N eluviation and accumulation in the soil can be achieved with bagasse charcoal use.
In contrast to this, the BrownEarth horizon Be with its strongly coagulated fabric does not contain such oriented clay-colloids, which would be a prerequisite for dispersion and transport by the eluviation process.
Neoeluvium--A soil developed from the eluviation and illuviation of recent deposits, such as alluvium.
The possible reason for this phenomenon is that soil organic matter tended to be adsorbed by soil clay under conditions of intensive eluviation.
The dense clay matrix of subsoil is a consequence of pedogenic processes that have transported and packed clay crystals including eluviation and shrink-swell forces due to dry-wet conditions (Mullins and Panayiotopoulos 1984).
The SOC flow in the composition of organic matter begins with litter falling on or into the soil, continues with its disintegration, transformation into humus and accumulation, and ultimate disappearance, via consumption by soil organisms, complete mineralization or illuviation into the subsoil, or eluviation out of the soil cover.
E horizon--Soil horizon caused by deposit of soil due to eluviation, or erosion due to water movement.
Eluviation (Chapter 3)--Removal (loss) of soil material in suspension or solution from a soil layer.
However, EC trended downward in UUU at the 0-10 cm depth and also over the 0-30 cm depth, probably reflecting enhanced eluviation of nutrients from the soil beds.
All carbon in soil profiles was not accounted for as the database does not contain OC data for all subsurface horizons and selecting only surface horizons avoids accounting for buried topsoils or eluviation of carbon and re-deposition in subsoil horizons.
Morphological features of clay eluviation, formation of evident clayskins, and presence of argillic properties are still lacking.
