  • Titanium as an indicator of residual soil on arid-land plants

    Titanium (Ti) has been suggested as a soil contamination indicator for plant samples slated for trace element analysis because it is abundant in soil but not in plants. Based on results from our survey of regional soils and plants for cesium (Cs), we sought to confirm Ti as a valid soil contamination indicator reasoning that there are three sources of Ti associated with plant samples: (i) ...

  • Connections: Understanding Urban Soil Lead

    There is no such thing as unleaded when talking about soils in urban areas. If a car had ever been driven near or paint had been applied to a home built on the soil prior to 1975, that soil will have measurable concentrations of lead. It can be detected in soils at the subparts per million range. Lead can cause developmental delays and reduced mental capacity. In short, lead is bad. But does a ...

  • Poor quality soil can lead to harmful impact: Stop erosion now

    Soil erosion is known as the wearing away of topsoil, leading to poor quality soil that is less conducive for plant and vegetation growth. In our series of blog posts focusing on erosion control, today we take a look at the harmful effects of soil erosion, and how they cause concerns not only to the environment, but also to human health and the economy as a whole. Poor Quality Soil ...

  • Upstream silver source mapping – a case study in Stockholm, Sweden

    Silver (Ag) can be a problem for wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) and their capability to use sewage sludge as a soil fertilizer. Due to a high accumulation rate in soils, the levels of Ag in the incoming water at the WWTP must be reduced. This study aims to identify major diffuse emission sources in the technosphere through a comprehensive substance flow analysis of Ag in Stockholm, Sweden. ...

  • Cadmium regarded as the most serious contaminant of the modern age

    Abstract Cadmium is today regarded as the most serious contaminant of the modern age. It is absorbed by many plants and seacreatures and, because of its toxicity, presents a major problem for foodstuffs. Contamination through fertilisers becomes an increasing problem. Unlike lead, cadmium contamination cannot be removed from plants by washing them; it is distributed throughout the organism. It ...
