Soil gas profiles of CCl 4 were studied to correlate degradation rates to those profiles and to calculate the CCl 4 flux into soils. Removal of atmospheric CCl 4 by soil could be greater at high pH values. Soils were significant sinks for atmospheric CCl 4. A more detailed understanding of soil characteristics and dynamics of microbial populations was needed to determine the nature and mechanisms of CCl 4 degradation in different soil environments.
