Full Name

ASTM C1580 – Standard Test Method for Water-Soluble Sulfate in Soil


This test method is for the determination of water-soluble sulfate in soils.

This test method was developed for concentrations of water-soluble sulfate in soils between 0.02 and 3.33 % sulfate by mass.

This test method does not determine sulfur in any form except as sulfate.

Some governing bodies regulate the movement of soils from one area to another. It is up to the sampler and laboratory to comply with all regulations.
