Assessment of heavy metal contamination in roadside soils along the Shenyang-Dalian Highway in Liaoning Province China

Heavy metal contaminations were assessed through a detailed soil survey in roadside soils along the Shenyang-Dalian Highway of Liaoning Province, China. Pb, Cu, Cd, Ni, and Zn were analyzed using

It could be concluded that impaction of traffic emission on the accumulation of heavy metals in roadside soils in urban area was slight and soil properties such as pH and organic matters were critical factors influencing the retention ofheavy metals in soils.

Traffic-Related Heavy Metal Contamination in Urban Areas and Correlation with Traffic Activity in China

In this study, a detailed investigation was conducted to collect the concentrations of heavy metals—including cadmium, copper, nickel, lead and zinc—from five geographic areas to reflect the

The Effect of Highway on Heavy Metal Accumulation in Soil in Turfy Swamps, Northeastern China

A detailed investigation was conducted to study the effect of highway on the accumulation of heavy metals in soils of turfy swamps. The concentrations of Cr, Zn, Cu, and Cd showed a decreasing trend

Accumulations of Heavy Metals in Roadside Soils Close to Zhaling, Eling and Nam Co Lakes in the Tibetan Plateau

The results show that accumulations of Cu; Zn and Pb in roadside soils remain an unpolluted level at all sites; however; the Cd indices in the regions with higher traffic volume have reached a strong potential ecological risk level and some spots with peak concentrations have even been severely polluted due to traffic activities.

The Distribution of Trace Metals in Roadside Agricultural Soils, Thailand

The contamination factor demonstrated that the road edge soils were moderately- to highly-polluted with Cd, Cu, Pb, and Zn, and the safest distance to minimize metal pollution for agricultural production is proposed to be greater than 10 m away from theRoad edge.

Concentration of Pb, Cu, Zn and Cd in the Roadside Soil of Doha: Effect of Traffic Volume and Season

The concentration of copper (Cu), lead (Pb), zinc (Zn) and cadmium (Cd) in the roadside soil of Doha was evaluated. Three different roads were selected for the study namely, Mesrif street, Salwa road

Distribution and Ecological Risk Assessment of Heavy Metals in Roadside Soil along the Hemat Highway of Tehran, Iran

The impact of land use and a distance from the highway on heavy metal concentration in soils along the highway has been investigated. 28 soil samples were collected in August 2014 from the roadside



Assessment of Heavy Metal Contamination in Roadside Surface Soil and Vegetation from the West Bank

I. viscosa can be considered as a good biomonitor for roadside metal pollution because it reflected roadside contamination better than soil and their metal concentrations showed much less fluctuations than those in soil samples.

Heavy metal contamination of roadside topsoil in Osogbo, Nigeria: its relationship to traffic density and proximity to highways

The levels of lead, cadmium, copper, nickel and zinc were determined in the roadside topsoil in Osogbo, Nigeria, with the view to determining the effect of traffic density and vehicular contribution

[Background concentrations of soil heavy metals in Beijing].

The Cd background concentration suggested in present study is about 125% higher than that of China National Environmental Monitoring Center (CNEMC) in 1990, and the As, Cr, Cu, Zn concentrations are 19%-55% lower than those of CNEMC, while the concentrations of Pb and Ni are not obviously different from those ofcnEMC.

The quality of water and sediments of street runoff in Amman, Jordan

Metallic content (Cr, Fe, Mn, Cu, Ni, Pb and Cd) of street sediments and street runoff in addition to major inorganic constituents (Ca, Mg, Na, K, HCO3, Cl, NO3 and SO4) of street runoff were
