Mobile Forms of Heavy Metals in the Soils of the Town of Volsk (Saratov Region)

The concentrations of mobile forms of heavy metals (copper, nickel, zinc, copper, lead and chromium) in the soils of the town of Volsk (Saratov region) were determined. It has been established that the concentration of heavy metals (nickel, copper, lead and zinc) exceeds the maximum permissible concentration. 94% of the selected samples are related to the permissible level of pollution, 4% to the moderate level and 2% to the dangerous level. Thus, it can be noted that the occurrence of anomalous zones with a dangerous level of pollution is observed on the territory of the town of Volsk.

Concentration of Mobile Forms of Heavy Metals in Soils in the Territory of Trophimovsk Oil Field (Saratov Region)

The soil cover on the territory of the Trofimov oil field located within the city of Saratov has been studied. Based on the results of analysis of concentrations of mobile forms of heavy metals, an assessment of the modern sanitary-hygienic and ecological-geochemical state of soils was performed. Significant correlations between different metals have been found. An excess of the maximum permissible concentrations for nickel and copper has been established.

Biogenic Migration of Cd, Pb, Ni, and As in the «Soil– Plant» System and Change in Soil Biological Activity

The role of agricultural plants in the migration of Cd, Pb, Ni, and As in the soil-plant system and their contribution to decreasing soil metal toxicosis were studied. The influence of heavy metals and arsenic on the enzyme activity of southern chernozem and the restoration of soil biological activity during the elimination of these elements from planted soil were investigated. 

The Content of Mobile Forms of Heavy Metals in a Soil Cover of the City Park of Volsk Town

The soil cover in the territory of the recreational zone «City Park» located in the central part of the Volsk town of the Saratov region is investigated. The assessment of a current sanitary and hygienic and ecological and geochemical state of soils is executed by results of the analysis of concentration of mobile forms of heavy metals. Excess of threshold limit values on nickel, copper and zinc is established.

The Structure Features of Geochemical Field of Snow Cover in the City of Saratov

Researches of snow cover in the city of Saratov. The chemical composition of the melt water and the insoluble residue. Based on the data conclusions about the ecological state of the snow cover.
