This study was planned to investigate the concentrations of heavy metal in soils and crops and estimate the potential health risks of metals to humans via consumption of crops grown at industrial sites (Zarrinshahr and Mobarakeh) and control site (Natanz) in Isfahan province, central Iran. The soils and food crops (wheat and rice grains and onion bulbs)(More)
This study evaluated the effects of salinity and alkalinity of soil on growth of Haloxylon sp. in Segzi plain. Segzi plain is located in the Eastern part of Isfahan province in the center of Iran and is about 40 kms from Isfahan center. The phenomena of salinity and alkalinity are the key factors in the process of desertification that are mainly created in(More)
Wind erosion is a widespread phenomenon in arid region. The purpose of this study was assessed the capacity of nanoclay to control soil erosion in wind tunnel experiment. The nanoclay isolated from soils was dominant in montmorillonite. A sandy soil from the Khara desert, nearly 100 km East of Isfahan (Central Iran) was used. The soils of this area are(More)
Assessing soil fertility is essential to help identify strategies with less environmental impact in order to achieve more sustainable agricultural systems. The main objective of this research was to assess two soil fertility evaluation approaches in paddy fields for rice cultivation, in order to develop a user-friendly and credible soil fertility index(More)
Land use change, if not based on proper scientific investigation affects other physical, chemical, and biological properties of soil and leading to increased destruction and erosion. It was imperative to study the effects of changing rangelands to farmlands on some Soil quality indexes. Undisturbed soil samples were collected from the depths of 0-10 and(More)
Wind erosion and dust storms are main issues in arid and semi-arid regions. Application of soil stabilizer on unstable land might be an eff ective and sustainable strategy in arid and semi-arid countries to minimized harmful eff ects on environment and human health. Th e aim of this study was to assess the eff ect of using nanoclay for increasing soil(More)
In this study, some heavy metal (Cd, Pb, Ni, Fe, Co, Cr, Mn, Cu, and Zn) concentrations were measured in the blood serum samples of 25 patients who suffered from the multiple sclerosis (MS) disease living in two industrial regions of Isfahan, Iran, using inductively coupled plasma (ICP) instrument. Also, blood serum levels of heavy metals in 25 healthy(More)
Assessment of the spatial distribution of soil properties has achieved considerable interest among soil scientists, both for testing hypotheses about soil formation processes and for predicting the properties of soils at nonsampled locations (mapping). In this paper, a discussion of two various procedures for modeling of spatial varieties were provided. Two(More)
Soil quality includes soil ability and capacity for performing its own duties as a vital system within the ecosystem and under different uses in a way that in addition to keeping its biological production, it would be able to improve the weather quality and provide the health of human, plants and animals (Karlen and Stott, 1994). Some of important(More)
