The soil sorption properties were determined for the base of ash storage at a proposed power station on Sakhalin Island. The analyses of aqueous extracts of the coal ashes that are intended for use at the station resulted in the identification of potential pollutant elements that might be transferred with the infiltrate of atmospheric precipitation. The composition of the infiltrate-modeling solution was selected based on the data. The sorption capacity of the covering soil by identified pollutants was evaluated at static and dynamic conditions, along with the degree of potential desorption of these pollutants.
