A toxicity assessment of soils sampled from the Balapan site of the Semipalatinsk nuclear test site

Abstract

Toxicity of soils sampled from the area of the “Chagan” explosion (the Balapan site of the Semipalatinsk nuclear test site, Kazakhstan) were assayed with the use of biological tests and physicochemical analysis. Soils from the most part (2.56 km2 out of 4 km2) of the area studied were found to be toxic. Soil aqueous extracts toxicity substantially resulted… (More)
