Abstract in another language

Atmospheric deposition has resulted in an accumulation of inorganic sulfur (S) in many forestsoils. At S6semulde (Harz Mountains) samples from 5-240 cm depth were analysed. Most sulfate (SO4) isaccumulated at about 30-60 cm depth: 8.5-9.5 mmoI c kg -1. Large amounts can also be retained in > 100 cm.To assess changes in SO 4 dynamics in time,adsorption isotherms have been included in several processorientedmodels, e.g., in MAGIC. The Lange Bramke (LB) Model is the first model used on the catchmentscale containing solubility products for the hydroxosulfate minerals jurbanite and alunite. By reconstructingthe long-term acidification history (140 years) both models were successfully calibrated to a 14-yeardeposition, soil and streamwater data set at Lange Bramke catchment (Harz Mountains). According toMAGIC the present accumulation of SO 4 in 0 - 80 cm is 8.7 mmol c kg 1, while according to the LB-Model10.2 rnmol e kg -1 are stored as jurbanite. Both models predicted 4.5 mmol c kg -I SO 4 in the subsoil layer,retained as alunite in the LB Model. These values correspond to the amounts measured in soil and subsoilsamples at S6semulde, respectively. However, for future scenarios with decreasing S inputs the models showdifferent developments in SO 4 concentrations. Changes in MAGIC are gradual whereas the LB modelpredicts stepwise decreasing SO 4 values as soon as previously stored hydroxosulfates are fully dissolved.Such concentration "jumps" have not been observed.Keywords: sulfur sorption, long-term acidification, sulfate adsorption, hydroxosulfateminerals, modeling, future scenarios
