Abstract Using a large data set of results from long-term experiments, a fractionation of soil organic matter (SOM) corresponding to turnover rates is presented and discussed. It will be concluded that soil organic matter must be divided into at least two important fractions. The appliance of the easily determinable parameter "hot water extractable fraction of soil organic matter" for the evaluation of the decomposable part of SOM as well as the evaluation of the mobility and bioavailability of organic pollutants is concluded.
