Abstract Soil solutions were extracted from surface and subsoil samples of highly weathered soils in the field moist state and from air-dry samples which had been re-wet and incubated at 28°C for 1 to 64 days. Soil solutions were analysed following filtration through 0-22 μm and 0.025 μm pore-diameter rhembranes. Selected samples were also incubated following sterilization by gamma irradiation (50 kGy) to investigate the effects of microorganisims on soil solution C dynamics. Ultra-filtration did not affect the concentration of the major cations or anions but significantly reduced Al, Fe, Mn, Si and organic C concentration in some surface soil solutions extracted from field-moist samples and from re-wet air-dry samples after short incubation periods. The organically-complexed Al concentration in soil solution was significantly increased by air-drying and re-wetting soil; the organic Al concentration decreased with increased time of incubation to levels comparable with that present in field-moist samples. Inorganic monomeric Al reached a stable concentration, comparable with that in field moist samples, when air-dry soils were re-wet and incubated for 1 day. While gamma irradiation effectively sterilized the soil and stabilized the concentration of Al and organic C in solution, the magnitude of the changes in soil solution composition observed as a result of irradiation diminish the value of this finding.
