Organic and Inorganic Contaminants in Urban Soils of St. Petersburg (Russia)

Research output: Book/Report/AnthologyBookResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The study is aimed on assessment of soil contamination with organic and inorganic pollutants in areas with different land use type. A total pollution index (Zc) was calculated in order to assess soil contamination level according to 4 categories. A total of 8 metals were analyzed including Pb, Cd, Cu, Zn, Ni, As, Hg. Multiple excess of maximal permissible levels in soils of residential and industrial sites were found. Obtained Zc values refers soils to high health risk category. A total of 15 priority polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were analyzed. Measured total PAHs and benzo(e)pyrene concentrations ranged from 0,06 to 3,77 mg/kg between different land uses with a maximum for residential areas. A slight positive correlation between Pb and benzo(e)pyrene concentrations in soil was found. Applied statistical method revealed significant differences in levels of HMs and PAHs, between land uses. A benzo(a)pyrene equivalency approach was used to assess health risk posed to humans due to soil contamination with PAHs.
