摘要: Anionic exchange is an effective treatment option for the removal of natural organic matter from surface waters. However, the management of the spent brine regenerant often limits the adoption of this process. The current study reports one year of operation of ion exchange resins under biological mode (BIEX, i.e. without regeneration to promote biofilm growth on the media) compared to the performance of (i) ion exchange with weekly regeneration (IEX), (ii) granular activated carbon under biological mode (BAC) and (ii) granular activated carbon under adsorption mode (GAC). Four parallel pilot filters (GAC, BAC, IEX and BIEX) were fed with a colored and turbid river water without pretreatment. Although IEX provided the best performance (80% DOC removal) throughout the study, BIEX achieved a similar performance to IEX prior to DOC breakthrough (92 days) and subsequently achieved a mean DOC removal of 62% in warm water conditions. The GAC filter was rapidly exhausted (2 weeks) while the BAC filter only provided a 5% DOC reduction. Full nitrification was observed on both the BIEX and BAC filters under warm water conditions (>15 °C). After one year of operation, BIEX was successfully regenerated with brine. According to a mass balance, 69% of DOC removal in BIEX was due to ion exchange while we assume the remainder was biodegraded. Operation of ion exchange in biological mode is a promising option to reduce spent brine production while still achieving high DOC removal.

摘要: Humic acid has a controversial effect on the biological treatment processes. Here, we have investigated humic acid effects on the Anammox activity by studying the nitrogen removal efficiencies in batch and continuous conditions and analyzing the microbial community using Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) technique. The results showed that the Anammox activity was affected by the presence of humic acid at a concentration higher than 70 mg/L. In fact, in the presence of humic acid concentration of 200 mg/L, the Anammox activity decreased to 57% in batch and under continuous condition, the ammonium removal efficiencies of the reactor decreased from 78 to 41%. This reduction of Anammox activity after humic acid addition was highlighted by FISH analysis which revealed a considerable reduction of the abundance of Anammox bacteria and the bacteria living in symbiosis with them. Furthermore, a total inhibition of Candidatus Brocadia fulgida was observed. However, humic acid has promoted heterotrophic denitrifying bacteria which became dominant in the reactor. In fact, the evolution of the organic matter in the reactor showed that the added humic acid was used as carbon source by heterotrophic bacteria which explained the shift of metabolism to the favor of heterotrophic denitrifying bacteria. Accordingly, humic acid should be controlled in the influent to avoid Anammox activity inhibition.

摘要: Solid-phase humic substances (also termed humins, HMs) are the largest fraction of humic substances (HSs) in soils and sediments, which are recently shown to be capable of mediating electron transfer in many key biogeochemical processes. However, the redox properties of HMs remains poorly investigated, likely due to their structural complexity and the lack of efficient methodology. Herein, an electrochemical in situ FITR spectroscopic (EC-FTIRS) technique coupled with two-dimensional correlation spectroscopy (2D-COS) was employed for the first time to study the redox process of complex HMs at a molecular level. In situ FTIR identified that the IR bands of quinone and phenolic moieties in the HMs were potential dependent, suggesting that they were the main redox sites in response to the redox transformation of the HMs. Meanwhile, In situ FTIR characterizations showed that the significant variations in IR bands positioned at ~1500 and ~1470 cm-1 in response to the applied potentials, providing evidence for the presence of quinone radical and dianion intermediates during the redox process. The 2D-COS analysis was used to further explore variations in infrared intensities as a function of the potentials applied to reduce or oxidize the HMs, which indicated the occurrence of the typical redox reactions of quinone in the HMs. These results improve our understanding on the redox mechanism of HMs at the molecular level and have significant implication for in-depth understanding of biogeochemical processes.

摘要: The adsorption of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) onto soil minerals is an important process for understanding bacterial adhesion to mineral surfaces and environmental cycling of nutrients and contaminants. To clarify the molecular level mechanisms and processes of EPS adsorption, the interaction mechanisms between EPS and goethite was explored using two-dimensional (2D) Fourier transformation infrared (FTIR) correlation spectroscopy (CoS) assisted by C 1s near edge X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy (NEXAFS). Results show that the amide functional groups of EPS play an important role in its adsorption on goethite, and the adsorption of EPS-proteins on goethite is a function of electrolyte concentration, with increasing adsorption at a higher electrolyte concentration. Results also show that the order in which the EPS functional groups interact and bind with goethite is dependent on electrolyte concentration, where carboxyl and phosphoryl functional groups are the first to adsorb at low electrolyte concentration, while amide groups are the first to adsorb at higher electrolyte concentration. Deconvolution and curve fitting of the amide I band at the end of the adsorption process (~300 min) shows that the secondary structure of proteins is converted from a random coil conformation to aggregated strands, α-helices and turns. This conversion leads to increased adsorption of EPS-proteins and explains the overall adsorption increase of EPS on goethite surfaces with an increasing concentration of electrolyte. Furthermore, the adsorption of the carboxyl functional groups of EPS decreases with increasing electrolyte concentration, likely due to more effective screening of the goethite surface charge with increasing concentration of electrolyte. The integrated results from ATR-FTIR and 2D-CoS allow us to construct a comprehensive overview of EPS-goethite interaction processes at the molecular level, which can be used to improve our understanding of EPS-mineral interactions in the natural environment. These results also provide fundamental information for a better understanding of bacterial biofilm formation on soil and sediment minerals, and facilitate research on the subsequent interaction of nutrients and contaminants with the reactive constituents of biofilms in natural and contaminated environments.

摘要: The capacity of soils to store organic carbon represents a key function of soils that is not only decisive for climate regulation but also affects other soil functions. Recent efforts to assess the impact of land management on soil functionality proposed that an indicator- or proxy-based approach is a promising alternative to quantify soil functions compared to time- and cost-intensive measurements, particularly when larger regions are targeted. The objective of this review is to identify measurable biotic or abiotic properties that control soil organic carbon (SOC) storage at different spatial scales and could serve as indicators for an efficient quantification of SOC. These indicators should enable both an estimation of actual SOC storage as well as a prediction of the SOC storage potential, which is an important aspect in land use and management planning. There are many environmental conditions that affect SOC storage at different spatial scales. We provide a thorough overview of factors from micro-scales (particles to pedons) to the global scale and discuss their suitability as indicators for SOC storage: clay mineralogy, specific surface area, metal oxides, Ca and Mg cations, microorganisms, soil fauna, aggregation, texture, soil type, natural vegetation, land use and management, topography, parent material and climate. As a result, we propose a set of indicators that allow for time- and cost-efficient estimates of actual and potential SOC storage from the local to the regional and subcontinental scale. As a key element, the fine mineral fraction was identified to determine SOC stabilization in most soils. The quantification of SOC can be further refined by including climatic proxies, particularly elevation, as well as information on land use, soil management and vegetation characteristics. To enhance its indicative power towards land management effects, further “functional soil characteristics”, particularly soil structural properties and changes in the soil microbial biomass pool should be included in this indicator system. The proposed system offers the potential to efficiently estimate the SOC storage capacity by means of simplified measures, such as soil fractionation procedures or infrared spectroscopic approaches.

摘要: Persulfate is the latest oxidant which is being used increasingly for the remediation of groundwater and soil contaminated with organic compounds. It is of great significant to offer readers a general summary about different methods of activating persulfate, mainly including heat-activated, metal ions-activated, UV-activated, and alkaline-activated. Meanwhile, in addition to persulfate concentration as an influencing factor for persulfate oxidation process, selected information like temperature, anions, cations, pH, and humic acid are presented and discussed. The last section focuses on the advantages of different activated persulfate processes, and the suggestions and research needs for persulfate-based advanced oxidation in the remediation of polluted groundwater and soil.

摘要: In this study, a novel type of mesophilic anaerobic bioreactor—an expanded granular sludge bed (EGSB)—was utilized to explore the effect of suspending reactor operation on the treatment performance and the microbial community structure. The parameters of performance and bacterial community before and after a four-week suspension were compared for the starch processing wastewater treatment bioreactor. The results indicate that the removal rate of the organic matter remained higher than 90%, although the biomass significantly decreased after restarting the reactor. However, the relatively stable microbial community structure before the suspension was altered significantly during the restart and post-running stages. This change was primarily due to variability in satellite species and the substitution effect of different dominant bacteria. For example, some non-major carbohydrate-degrading bacteria that were sensitive to nutrition deficiency, such as Desulfovibrio and Geobacter, were dramatically reduced after the suspension. In contrast, the stress of starvation stimulated the reproduction of hydrolytic bacteria, such as Macellibacteroides. However, the high bacterial diversity index (6.12–6.65) and the longstanding core species, including Chloroflexi, Cloacimonetes, Ignavibacteriae, Thermotogae and Euryarchaeota, maintained the functional stability of the reactor. Consequently, although the total bacteria decreased significantly after reactor operation was suspended, sufficient functional bacteria supported by the high diversity, as well as the longstanding core species, guaranteed the effective degradation after suspension.

摘要: A key question in aquatic elemental cycling is related to the influence of bottom water oxygen conditions in regulating the burial and release of carbon under climate warming. In this study, we used head capsules of Chironomidae larvae to assess community and diversity change between the past (estimated as Pre-Industrial Period) and present and to reconstruct changes in hypolimnetic oxygen conditions from 30 subarctic ecotonal lakes (northeastern Lapland) using the top-bottom paleolimnological approach applying surface sediment (topmost 0–2 cm) and reference (4–5 cm) samples. Subsequently, we tested the findings against dissolved organic carbon (DOC) concentration of the sites. We found that the benthic communities were statistically dissimilar between the past and the present with largest changes occurring in the more transparent oligo-mesohumic lakes. However, murky polyhumic lakes displayed uniformly a decrease in diversity. The chironomid-inferred oxygen values showed a general decrease toward the present with largest shifts in low-DOC lakes, whereas no significant changes were found in the hypolimnetic oxygen conditions of high-DOC lakes, which were often located in wetland areas. These finding suggest that lakes associated with constant organic carbon inputs are more resilient toward climate-induced reductions in hypolimnetic oxygen.

摘要: Oil degradation by surface-level atmospheric ozone has been largely ignored in the field. To address this knowledge gap, this study investigated the ozonation rate and extent of typical petroleum compounds by simulated surface-level ozone, including total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPHs), n-alkanes, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Moreover, the work explored the effect of a prototype oil dispersant, Corexit EC9500A, on the ozonation rate. Rapid oxidation of TPHs, n-alkanes and PAHs was observed at various gaseous ozone concentrations (i.e. 86, 200 and 300 ppbv). Generally, the presence of the oil dispersant enhanced ozonation of the oil compounds. The addition of humic acid inhibited the reaction, while increasing salinity accelerated the degradation. Both direct ozonation by molecular ozone and indirect oxidation by ozone-induced radicals play important roles in the degradation process. The findings indicate that ozonation should be taken into account in assessing environmental fate and weathering of spilled oil.

摘要: Coastal waters are subject to many sources of organic matter, such as land runoff, industrial and urban waste, rivers and atmospheric depositions. Semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOC) are frequently found next to coastal and urban areas. Depending on the specific physical properties of each compound in the SVOC group, these compounds may be adsorbed to particulate matter, evaporate to the atmosphere or accumulate in the sea's uppermost layer - the Sea surface microlayer (SML). Since many of these compounds present health risks, understanding the mechanisms that control the SVOC environmental concentration is crucial, especially in coastal waters.

摘要: The degradation of soil and vegetation substantially damages ecosystem functions. Litter crusts play an active role in the vegetation restoration and management in desert ecosystems. In this study, the effects of litter crusts on surface microhabitats and species formation on sandy land were studied in the wind-water erosion crisscross region in the Mu Us Desert, northwest China. Soil microhabitat features including moisture, temperature, and organic matter content were measured in different positions of litter crusts and bare sand, seedling species richness, and total seedling number of all species were recorded in litter crusts on the sand's surface. The results showed that there were significant differences between litter crusts and bare sand in terms of soil moisture, temperature, organic matter content, and light intensity. Compared with that of bare sand, soil moisture below litter crusts was increased by an average of 17.0% overall, soil organic matter content was increased by 77.5% at the 0–5 cm depth and by 80.8% at the 5–10 cm depth. Litter crusts decreased soil temperature and light intensity by an average of 16.6% and 31.6%, respectively. Seedling species richness and total seedling number of all species were significantly higher in litter crusts than those in bare sand. Our findings revealed that litter crusts modify the surface microhabitats of sand by maintaining soil moisture, regulating soil temperature, increasing soil nutrients, and reducing light intensity, thus promoting species establishment in the wind-water erosion crisscross region.

摘要: In this work, the variation of fluorescent dissolved organic matters (FDOM) of antibiotic wastewater in a full-scale treatment plant was studied. Fluorescent components of anaerobic, aerobic, Fenton stages were separately figured out by parallel factor analysis (PARAFAC) based on excitation emission matrix (EEM) dataset. Then, these components were pairwise quantitatively compared according to cosine similarity (CS). It was found that, after the anaerobic treatment, the major components showed remarkable similarity (CS > 0.97) to those of raw wastewater, although their maximum fluorescence intensity (Fmax) decreased slightly or moderately (7% 54%). However, the aerobic treatment dramatically changed both the composition and content of fluorescent components, as all the protein-like components completely disappeared and only the humic-like components with much lower intensity were observed. After Fenton oxidation, all these humic-like components were remained (CS > 0.97) with fairly reduced Fmax (51% 61%). For both aerobically treated and Fenton-oxidized wastewater, Fmax correlated well with dissolved organic carbon (DOC). This suggested a dominant proportion of humic-like substances. The combination of PARAFAC based on separate EEM dataset of each treatment stage and CS assessment is a good approach to better understand FDOM variation and can be of much practical significance to monitor wastewater quality.

摘要: Coastal wetlands are increasingly being converted into canal estates with potential consequences for ecosystem functioning. We compared the sources and fate of organic matter and water quality at four types of canal habitats (entrances and ends of canals, canal lakes and lake edges) and shallow and deep natural habitats (four replicates of each habitat). The fate of labile organic matter was assessed by measuring rates of scavenging of carrion. Surface sediments were analysed for organic carbon content and stable carbon isotopes, fatty acid biomarkers and compound specific stable isotope analysis of selected fatty acids were used to elucidate sources of sedimentary organic matter. Canal lakes differed from other habitats and were characterised by negligible scavenging, larger quantities of organic matter comprised of higher contributions from diatoms, and hypoxia. Despite some trends, natural habitats were statistically indistinguishable from canal entrances and ends. Variation among replicate habitats was large.

摘要: The world during the early Middle Triassic (Anisian) was characterized by a distinct recovery of the carbonate factory after the Permian–Triassic crisis. This recovery seems to have passed over the Anisian environment on the tropical northern margin of Gondwana (Israel, Levant Basin) and to have resulted in the low diversity of barren horizons of carbonate-secreting organisms. Four Anisian successions (the Ramon 1, Hameishar 1, Nafha 1, and David 1 boreholes) were studied to decode the factors preventing regional recovery. A multi-proxy analysis was performed on these boreholes, including the carbonate/siliciclastic ratio, total organic carbon (TOC), carbon/nitrogen (C/N) ratio and inorganic carbon (δ13Ccarb), oxygen (δ18Ocarb), and nitrogen (δ15N) isotopic compositions. The aim of assessing the combination of these proxies was to characterize the geochemical conditions in the regional basins. These successions record two C-cycle perturbation events, characterized by negative shifts in δ13Ccarb values and recognized in most successions, indicating the land-marine teleconnection effect on the C-cycle perturbation. The δ18Ocarb excursions revealed similar oscillation trends, with global warming evidenced by increasing circumtropical precipitation and terrestrial influxes, whereas global cooling was reflected by increased carbonate factory production. The low δ15N values in all of the studied successions indicated the presence and flourishing of N-fixers. The absence or scarcity of carbonate-secreting organisms suggests that these N-fixers were the source of the carbonate fraction in the sediments. Episodic events with high δ15N values suggest an accumulation of terrestrial organic matter (OM) or oxygenation events, allowing short-term colonization by benthic fauna at the marine sites.

摘要: Dry land is a massive contributor to global nitrous oxide (N2O) production and biochar is a potential material for soil amendment that can impact soil N2O emission. Considering that the moisture content of dry land is usually changeable, it is essential to investigate the effect of biochar on soil N2O emission under different moisture contents. Therefore, column experiments were conducted with two biochars (B300 and B500, biochars pyrolyzed at 300 and 500 °C, respectively) under five moisture contents (18%, 21%, 24%, 27% and 30%, w/w). The results showed that B300 promoted N2O emission under the moisture contents of 18%, 21% and 24% by increasing the content of dissolved organic carbon and thus enhancing the microbial processes related to N2O production. However, when the moisture contents were 27% and 30%, the promotion of N2O production was overwhelmed by the improvement in N2O reduction due to the B300 induced increase in the abundance ratio of nosZ to nirS, leading to the decrease in N2O emission. Moreover, B500 did not alter the content of dissolved organic matter significantly and thus caused no significant change in N2O emission when the moisture contents were 18%, 21% and 24%. But it was able to increase the abundance ratio of nosZ to nirS and thus decrease N2O emission when the moisture contents were 27% and 30%. The results further clarified the effect of biochar on soil N2O emission and helped to evaluate the N2O-suppressing-potential of biochar.

摘要: A column leaching experiment was performed to evaluate the influence of some relevant environmental factors (soil/water contact time, temperature, saturation) on mobility of aged polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in soil together with transport mediated by dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and mobile organic carbon (OC) coated fine particles/colloids. Consecutive fractions of leachates were collected after a variable pre-equilibration time (2, 5, 7, 48 days), using leaching solutions with different DOC content (tap water vs. Aldrich humic acid), in saturated vs. field capacity conditions and at different temperatures (25 °C vs. 15 °C). The data obtained were compared to the predicted values using a multimedia model (SoilPlusVeg) to evaluate model behaviour. Contact time and temperature determined a relevant effect on DOC and particle/colloid availability, with significant variations in leachate concentrations (up to 1 order of magnitude), typically overlooked by most environmental fate models. Results obtained at different temperatures show a modulation of the DOC/particles production with temperature and therefore the role of temperature changes in the environmental scenarios (e.g. seasonal variations). Transport of PCBs enhanced by Aldrich DOC was not linearly correlated to chemical hydrophobicity but revealed a threshold to ~Log KOW 6.5, likely because of the slow sorption kinetics of more hydrophobic chemicals. Additionally, variation of the saturation conditions (e.g. drying-wetting cycles) can determine contamination peaks at the beginning of an irrigation/rainfall event because of the soil/water equilibration. Model simulations, even when including DOC in the water phase, but not accounting for the particle/colloidal transport and sorption/desorption kinetics, mismatched the ratio of dissolved vs. DOC-associated and particle-associated PCBs and substantially underpredicted concentrations, especially for the high chlorinated congeners. The results indicated that some of the common assumptions and paradigms in fate modelling of such hydrophobic compounds should be revisited and models updated.

摘要: Hydrocarbons in coastal sediments record organic matter sources, and thus are widely used to elucidate both natural and anthropogenic inputs and for the estimation of pollution levels. Surface sediments were taken from Xiaoqing River and Laizhou Bay of eastern China in spring and summer of 2014, and were analyzed to determine the characteristics of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons. Various hydrocarbons were identified, including n-alkanes, monomethylated alkanes (MMAs), isoprenoid alkanes, linear alkylbenzenes (LABs), hopanes, steranes and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). They were used to track both biogenic (terrestrial plant and microbial inputs) and anthropogenic inputs (petroleum and fossil fuel or biomass burning) in this ecosystem. The major part of hydrocarbons identified came from anthropogenic inputs including petroleum residues and synthetic detergents related hydrocarbons (16.2–90.3%), followed by higher plant (4.5–80.5%) and microbial inputs (0.8–57.5%). Interestingly, significant differences in hydrocarbon concentrations and distributions were observed between spring and summer. In particular, significant higher percentages of microbially derived hydrocarbons, but lower percentages of anthropogenic and vascular plant derived hydrocarbons were observed in summer than spring. Further principal component analyses suggested that the overall distribution of aliphatic hydrocarbons was mainly controlled by seasonality instead of spatiality. In contrast, the distribution of PAHs showed insignificant spatial and seasonal differences. Physical processes such as atmospheric transportation and further deposition, may be factors influencing the distribution of PAHs in the study area with widely biomass and fossil fuel burning. The decoupled distributions of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons warrant further study for a comprehensive understanding of long term sedimentary hydrocarbon sources and input dynamics with increasing human activities.

摘要: Understanding the controls on spatial variability of groundwater arsenic (As) is critical for mitigating As contamination. The objective of this study is to determine controls on previously unexplained differences in groundwater As concentrations, which are high along the east bank and low along the west bank of the River Bhagirathi-Hoogly (B-H), the primary Indian distributary of the River Ganges, on the western margin of the Bengal basin. A total of 54 wells were sampled after the monsoon season at four sites (two each east and west of the B-H) in Murshidabad district, West Bengal, for field parameters, major and minor solutes, and stable isotopes of water. An additional four boreholes were drilled for analyses of sediment texture, mineralogy, total organic and inorganic carbon, and total As and other metal(loid)s. Results show that higher As in east-bank groundwater (median 0.031 mg/L) is associated with generally more anoxic conditions (higher median total Fe and lower median EH and NO3 ) relative to west-bank groundwater (median As < 0.001 mg/L), consistent with previous studies. In contrast, concentrations of Mn in the study area are highest in west-bank wells near the B-H. Carbonate and silicate weathering appear to be more important in east- and west-bank groundwater, respectively, which may reflect differences in sediment sources. Ranges of total As are similar in east- and west-bank sediments. Relatively depleted values of δ18O and δ2H in the east-bank aquifer and streams appear to reflect focused recharge through paleochannels, while relatively enriched west-bank values suggest diffuse recharge to upland aquifers. We speculate that water infiltrating through erosional, stratigraphic “windows” carries organic matter capable of mobilizing As in east-bank groundwater. This comprehensive evaluation of groundwater chemistry provides a more detailed understanding of controls on As variability within the basin.

摘要: Xenobiotic compounds are commonly detected in inland waters. Sunlight-induced photochemical reactions contribute to xenobiotic degradation, but the role of different photoreactions on large geographic scales remains poorly understood. Here, we used a combination of photochemical modelling and large-scale field data from 1020 lakes across Sweden to elucidate the photodegradation kinetics of the commonly used antibiotic sulfadiazine (SDZ) in organic matter-rich lakes. SDZ occurs in two forms, namely acidic HSDZ (pKa = 6.5) and basic/deprotonated SDZ . Both species are oxidised fast by the photogenerated triplet states of natural organic matter (3NOM*). However, they also undergo efficient back reactions because the partially oxidised HSDZ (and SDZ to a larger extent) can be reduced back to the initial compounds by the phenolic moieties contained in NOM. Typical lakes in Sweden are rich in NOM and have low pH, with the consequence that SDZ photochemistry would be dominated by HSDZ. Our simulation results showed that SDZ photodegradation kinetics in Swedish lakes would become significantly slower with increasing water depth and pH, while it depended little on latitude, which affects irradiance, or on organic matter content. As a consequence, SDZ would be particularly persistent in lakewater in some densely populated areas with relatively deep and high-pH lakes such as, most notably, the Stockholm region. Here the surface waters could be more heavily contaminated by pharmaceuticals compared to the scarcely populated regions in the centre-north of the country, where lakewater could otherwise promote an efficient photodegradation of SDZ.

摘要: Purpose: Using the delayed luminescence (DL) method, the photoluminescent properties of humic acids (HA) extracted from lake sediments were analyzed. Delayed luminescence is a promising technique for characterizing HA and other forms of organic matter of various origins. But information is insufficient regarding both its optimal operating conditions and also those environmental factors that control the chemical constitution of samples, which affects patterns of delayed luminescence. Materials and methods: The research material was HA from lake sediments. Humic acid extractions were carried out using the method developed by the International Humic Substances Society. Studies on excitation and recording of DL intensity of HA solutions were carried out with the use of a specially designed device for continuous recording of photo-induced luminescence. The DL was excited with a monochromatic light at multiple wavelengths. Results and discussion: The DL intensity depended on the wavelength of the exciting light. The highest DL intensity was obtained with excitation by blue light, the lowest DL intensity was observed with excitation by red light. Statistically significant differences among DL intensity were observed in the examined humic acids. These differences may be evidence of the variable quantitative and qualitative contributions of photoluminophores to the structure of the studied HA molecules as well as their different photochemical reactivities. For the blue- and green-excited DL intensity, statistically significant positive correlations were obtained with the elemental atomic ratio O:H and CQ coefficient. For the red-excited DL intensity, statistically significant positive correlations were obtained with the C and H content and H:C, C:N atomic ratios, while negative correlations were obtained with the free radical concentration. Conclusions: Delayed luminescence depended on the wavelength of the exciting light. The DL intensity excited by blue and green light was different than the red light-excited DL intensity. The DL depended on the primary composition of sediments and the properties and structure of HA too. The grouping of HA showed that the HA formed in organic matter-poor, silicate-rich sediments had greater DL emission than did those extracted from sediments that were enriched in organic matter.
