Soil oxygen is contained in soil air. It occupies
empty pore spaces in the soil, and it is dissolved in
the thin water films that coat soil particles, microorganisms,
and the fine roots of higher plants. The
term soil aeration refers to the availability of soil
oxygen for chemical and biological oxidation in soil.
