Abstract

We have successfully demonstrated the technique of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) in the determination of the total concentration of carbon and nitrogen in soils. We have obtained a linear calibration curve for carbon in 15 soil samples directly correlated to the soil combustion technique.
