Update to modeling soil selenium concentrations in the shallow soil profile at Kesterson Reservoir Merced County, California

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A mass balance model was developed to predict concentrations of water-extractable selenium in surface and subsurface soil by extrapolating the trend observed from 6 years of soil monitoring data collected at Kesterson Reservoir. Correlations between observed and calculated concentrations indicate that the major trends and year-to-year variations are well represented with the model. Results from this exercise were then used, under three climatic scenarios, to simulate the evolution of the soluble selenium inventory 25 years into the future. Based on these simulations, we expect that the availability of the soluble selenium inventory has most likely reached peak levels, and is ... continued below

Results from this exercise were then used, under three climatic scenarios, to simulate the evolution of the soluble selenium inventory 25 years into the future. Based on these simulations, we expect that the availability of the soluble selenium inventory has most likely reached peak levels, and is now declining. However, year-to-year climatic variations may influence the rate of decline, and occasionally reverse this prevailing trend.
