Abstract

Studies of peat soils in the Middle Pomerania region. These soils are found to bee strongly acidifies (pH < 4). Where as the peat soil collected from Czerwieniec seemed to be most distinguished in respect, to their properties. This soil is featured with lower organic carbon content (approximately lower by 13%), and also nitrogen (25%) and phosphor content (40%) in respect to the remaining soils originating from other places. It is least resistant to degradation. Undoubtedly sea has a great influence on the analysed peat soils. The nearer is the peat soil source to the sea, the more is the amount of chloride ions and sodium ions as well in the soil.


Key words: peat soil, acidity, sorption capacity, organic matter, chloride ions
