    Abstract

    Energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is employed to determine the concentration of nineteen elements in seven profiles representing the aridisols and vertisols groups from agricultural plains of Sudan. A significant variation in the concentration of alkaline and alkaline earth elements in the different regions is observed, which is discussed in relation to the texture of the soil and climatic factors. Uranium, determined by the delayed neutron technique, is observed to increase with depth in one area.
