Sources and Impacts of Contaminants in Soils

Soils are formed by the decomposition of rock and organic matter over many years. Soil properties vary from place to place with differences in bedrock composition, climate, and other factors. At times, the amounts of some soil elements and other substances may exceed levels recommended for the health of humans, animals, or plants. Certain chemical elements occur naturally in soils as components of minerals, yet may be toxic at some concentrations. Other potentially harmful substances may end up in soils through human activities.
