More About This Textbook


The main objective of the book is to contribute to the existing knowledge on soil pollution and remediation. Stress is given to: critical assessment of the used analyses and methods for study effects in combined chemical pollution (organic pollutants and pesticides, metals) on soil biota and fertility; to evaluate specific aspects of the risk assessment; to assess the most advanced technologies for soil remediation used for different purposes; to evaluated the economical involvement; to evaluate national policies for soil security in different NATO, Partner and Medditerranean Dialogue countries. Topics as laboratory and field methods for soil pollutants analyses, strategy of sampling and monitoring of polluted sites, sources, movement, interaction and transformation of soil pollutants, risk assessment of combined and complex exposure and effects of soil chemical pollution, management of soil pollution, prevention strategies and remediation are discussed. Recommendations concerning the fields of research needs, management of chemical polluted soils, environmental and environmental health policies and public communication and education are formulated.
