Soil is a much more complex growing habitat that remains productive only when it is cared for and nurtured. Combating and addressing soil pollution means assessing and minimizing the risks for. Soil contamination or soil pollution as part of land degradation is caused by the presence of xenobiotics (human-made) chemicals or other alteration in the natural soil environment. It is typically caused by industrial activity, agricultural chemicals or improper disposal of most common chemicals involved are petroleum hydrocarbons, polynuclear aromatic .
The Soil Pollution Crisis in China: A Cleanup Presents Daunting Challenge Chinese officials are only starting to come to grips with the severity and extent of the soil pollution that has contaminated vast areas of the nation’s farm fields — by one estimate more than 8 percent of China’s arable land. Salinization of the soil is a common pollution problem caused by irrigation in arid and semi-arid climates. This irrigation causes salts to build up in the soil. This eventually makes the soil unable to grow most crops. Salts are very difficult to remove from soil, so this is a pernicious problem.
Soil Contamination: Impacts on Human Health Over years of industrialisation have caused soil contamination to be a widespread problem in Europe. Decision makers, scientists, businesses and individual citizens generally accept and understand that air and water pollution can. This book unravels the recent studies in the field of soil and groundwater pollution. Assessment of risks from water, soil and air pollution, effective and viable remedies, waste disposal strategies, techniques and methods for protection of soil and groundwater, etc., are some of the areas that have been discussed in the text.

Soil Pollution: From Monitoring to Remediation provides comprehensive information on soil pollution, including causes, distribution, transport, the transformation and fate of pollutants in soil, and metabolite accumulation. The book covers organic, inorganic and nanoparticle pollutants and methodologies for their monitoring.
Soil Pollution: Sources, Management Strategies and Health Effects (Air, Water and Soil Pollution Science and Technology) by Chee Kong Yap | Sep 7, Hardcover. "The book is designed as a contribution to understanding the origins, mechanisms and consequences of the environmental setbacks brought about by soil pollution.
The book presents a comprehensive, integrated overview of previously separately treated materials, written for students and teachers as well as for professionals from the earth.

Soil and Water Contamination - CRC Press Book it contributes to the formation of a solid basis for adequate soil and water pollution control and integrated catchment management.
A unique feature of this work is that it does not treat water and soil pollution as independent processes, but as components of an integrated whole.
pollution, contamination of the environment as a result of human activities. The term pollution refers primarily to the fouling of air, water, and land by wastes (see air pollution; water pollution; solid waste).In recent years it has come to signify a wider range of.
The second section (“The impacts of soil pollution on the food chain and ecosystem services”) is the shortest section of the book, and describes the conditions leading to uptake by plants of different types of pollutants, and their impact on human health and soil ecosystem services (mainly related with agricultural and livestock practices).Cited by: 1.
Soil pollution: Causes, effe cts and control. (On world soil day. Rajesh Kumar Mishra, Tropical Forest Research Institute. P.O. RFRC, Mandla Road, Jabalpur (M.P.) World Soil Day was.
Our book was conceived as a basic overview of the processes governing the behavior of pollutants as affected by soil constituents and environmental factors. It was written for the use of specialists working on soil and unsaturated zone pollution and restoration, as well as for graduate students starting research in this field.
I also would like to thank Mr. Michael Sidwell (B.A.) for the extreme but characteristic care with which he read and revised the proofs. I hope that, in this new edition, the book may continue to serve the needs of students and professionals alike interested in the subject of soil pollution.
The book offers a larger perspective of soil’s impact on the environment by organizing chapters among three main processes: Physical, Chemical, and Biology.
It is organized in a student-friendly format with examples, discussion boxes, and key definitions in every chapter. Soil pollution is defined as the build-up in soils of persistent toxic compounds, chemicals, salts, radioactive materials, or disease causing agents, which have adverse effects on plant growth and animal health .Soil is the thin layer of organic and inorganic materials that Cited by: This book will be of great interest to students of environmental pollution and contemporary Chinese studies looking for an introduction to the topics of soil pollution and soil degradation, and for researchers looking for an extensive list of sources and analysis of China's environmental problems more broadly.
Additional Physical Format: Online version: Misra, S. Soil pollution. New Delhi: Ashish Pub. House, (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors. Environment pollution is a wide-reaching problem and it is likely to influence the health of human populations is great.
This paper provides the insight view about the affects of environment pollution in the perspective of air pollution, water and land/ soil waste pollution on human by diseases and problems, animals and trees/ by: Effects of Soil Contamination. Climate change. Deforestation causes a change in the rain cycle and this is a contributing factor to global warming and loss of ecosystems.
Loss of soil fertility. With the rapid growth of human population, we need all the food we can get. Chemicals used on soils reduce soil fertility so food production drops.
Pollution: Causes, Effects and Control is the fourth edition of a best-selling introductory level book dealing with chemical and radioactive pollution in its broadest sense. The scope of the book ranges from the sources of pollutants and their environmental behaviour, to their effects on human and non-human receptors, to the technologies and strategies available for fourth 5/5(2).
Soil Pollution. When the soil gets polluted sometime due to the effect of nature ob the improper management of human being, it leads to soil pollution. Cause. The improper farming technique or natural disaster can be the cause of soil pollution. Prevention. The farmer should be educated to sprinkle the insecticide or pesticide accordingly.
Soil pollution is defined as the presence of toxic chemicals (pollutants or contaminants) in soil, in high enough concentrations to pose a risk to human health and/or the the case of contaminants which occur naturally in soil, even when their levels are not high enough to pose a risk, soil pollution is still said to occur if the levels of the contaminants in soil exceed the levels.

Despite having been published about two years ago for the first time, the continuous demand for this book encouraged me to prepare this revised and enlarged edition. Many parts of the text have been rewritten, type errors traced and corrected, and the bibliography largely modified to include many of the references published about the subject of soil pollution 5/5(1).Essay on Soil Pollution.
Soil pollution is defined as the concentration of soil by huge amounts of toxic and poisonous substances that contaminate the soil and make it totally unfit for cultivation.
Soil loses its natural vitality and balance of elements, degrading its quality and lending.Mark Hodson, Soil pollution and its impact on soil life 34 Summary • Pollutants are generated by all sorts of human activities • Soil pollution is a wide spread problem • Pollutants have to be “bioavailable” to cause harm • Impacts occurs from the molecular to ecosystem scale • Quantification is by controlled testing and comparisons.
