The main purpose of the present study is to investigate the suitability of magnetic properties in correlation to geochemical measurements as a pollution-monitoring tool and study the metal transmission factors in an area around a major local source, namely a lignite-burning power plant. Surface soil samples were collected in the wide area of the power plant of Megalopolis (Peloponnesos, Greece). The magnetic susceptibility and other magnetic properties of the surface soils were originally…

Main scope of the present study is to combine topographic and geological data, magnetic susceptibility and thermomagnetic analysis in order to investigate the magnetic properties of the near surface

Magnetic properties of soils in a designated Natura area (GR4310010, Giouchtas Mountain)

AbstractThe magnetic behavior of the geologic formations around the Giouchtas or Juchtas Mountain (Mt.) in Central Crete, Greece, has been studied. The magnetic parameters (magnetic susceptibility

Bulletin of the Geological Society of Greece

In the recent years the measure of the magnetic susceptibility has been proved to be a reliable tool for the monitoring of pollution in topsoils. However the increase of magnetic susceptibility is

Magnetic characteristics and trace elements concentration in soils from Anthemountas River basin (North Greece): discrimination of different sources of magnetic enhancement

The magnetic minerals (e.g., iron oxides) that are present in soils can be easily identified by using rock-magnetic techniques. Increased magnetic susceptibility of soils may reflect particles rich

The interpolation of cadmium in soils of an urbanized territory of the steppe Dnieper region using geoinformation modeling methods

We collected data on the content of gross and mobile forms of cadmium in the genetic horizons of the main types of soils of the steppe Dnieper region in anthropogenically contaminated landscapes (for

Heavy Metals Accumulation in Silver Fir Needles in Swietokrzyski National Park

Abstract The article demonstrates the results of the research studies related to the air polluted with heavy metals in the area of Swietokrzyski National Park. The two-year-old needles of Abies alba

Bioindicative comparison of the fern Athyrium distentifolium for trace pollution in the Sudety and Tatra mountains of Poland

The A. distentifolium sites in the Sudety mountains which were influenced by long-range metal transport from the former Black Triangle were distinguished by the principal component and classification analysis (PCCA).



Magnetic response of soils and vegetation to heavy metal pollution--a case study.

Correlation analyses show a statistically significant link between magnetic susceptibility and the main heavy metals in soil samples, indicating that the magnetic susceptibility can provide a proxy method for identifying the relative contribution of industrial pollution in soils and vegetation, that is reliable, inexpensive, and less time-consuming than standard chemical analyses.

The influence of industrial immissions on the magnetic susceptibility of soils in upper Silesia

SummarySamples of metallurgical dusts and fly ashes from coal power plants and iron works in Upper Silesia as well as soil profiles in the close vicinity of these plants and in Ojcow National Park

Magnetic mapping of fly-ash pollution and heavy metals from soil samples around a point source in a dry tropical environment

A comparison of the spatial distribution of magnetic susceptibility with heavy-metal concentrations in soil samples suggests that magnetic measurements can be used as a rapid and inexpensive method for proxy mapping of air borne pollution due to industrial activity.

Magnetic record of industrial pollution in forest soils of Upper Silesia, Poland

The organic top horizons of forest soils in the vicinity of industrial centers in Upper Silesia, Poland, are characterized by remarkably high magnetic susceptibility. The unusually strong soil
