United Nations Environment Programme ; Monitoring and Assessment Research Centre (1980)

This survey of the literature on lead in soil discusses methods of estimation of total and available lead in soils, the relationships between soil properties and the uptake of lead by plants, and the form and distribution of lead in soil profiles. Examples of the accumulation of lead in soils from various sources are presented. An appendix of 31 tables brings together the available data on lead as well as other associated trace metals in soils, providing useful reference material for exposure assessment calculations.
