Description: Carbon and sulfur transformations were studied in surface soils from plots in MOFEP sites from August 1993 to May 1996 and in plots in watersheds ofMOFEP sites 1, 3, and 4 from May 1995 to May 1996. Element pools measured included total carbon, total sulfur, sulfate, and organic sulfur. Transformations quantified included lignocellulose mineralization and organic sulfur production. Most parameters measured were similar compared by plots and sites, with large differences observed when compared by date. This baseline data, compared with post-treatment data, may help determine mechanisms involved in soil carbon and sulfur transformations, and their relation to other soil nutrients, such as potassium and magnesium.
