Microbes in the soil of rice paddies or forest floors convert inorganic arsenic into a group of toxic organoarsenic gases called arsines. Scientists have long known about this process in arsenic's life cycle, but knew very little about its details or significance. Now researchers report the first field measurements of arsine, which could help scientists understand how arsenic accumulates in contaminated soil (Environ. Sci. Technol., DOI: . . .
