Standard Method of Test for Determining Water-Soluble Chloride Ion Content in Soil
standard by American Association of State and Highway Transportation Officials, 1994



This test method describes the procedures for sampling and testing a soil for chloride ion content. This standard is divided into two parts. The first part specifies the procedure for sampling and preparing the sample to size for testing. The second part delineates two test procedures for the determination of the water-soluble chloride ion content in soil.

Two methods are given. Method A is based upon the Mohr procedure for determining chloride ion with silver nitrate. Method B utilizes a pH/mV Meter. By comparing the mV readings to the calibration curve determine the chloride ion content.
