Abstract

The chemical and isotopic composition of soil solutions is highly relevant for environmental and forensic tasks. We investigated interstitial solutions from soil horizons of three cambisols in Styria (Austria). The soils consisted mainly of quartz, feldspar and clay minerals with a vertical variability. Two soil solution fractions from meso-, macro- and micropores (m) and micropores only (μ) were extracted at two subsequent hydraulic pressure steps corresponding to matrix potentials of up to pF 5.43 and from 5.43 to 5.73, respectively. While solute concentrations indicated diverse distribution in soil solution fractions m and μ, heavy stable hydrogen and oxygen isotopes of H2O (− 92.5‰ 2H 18O
