Heavy Metals in topsoils

Collection: ESDAC : European Soil Data Centre 

Description

GIS Maps (2008) produced by mapping the concentrations of eight critical heavy metals (arsenic, cadmium, chromium, copper, mercury, nickel, lead and zinc) using the 1588 georeferenced topsoil samples from the FOREGS Geochemical database. The concentrations were interpolated using block regression-kriging over the 26 European countries that contributed to the database.
