  • Characterization of second generation European reference soils for sorption studies in the framework of chemical testing - Part 1: Chemical composition and pedological properties


In order to guarantee a sufficiently large stock of the European reference soil set introduced for harmonization of sorption studies within the framework of chemical testing-the so-called EUROSOILS-a second generation of these unique reference materials has been introduced recently. In part one of this paper both generations are compared with regard to their chemical composition, pedological characteristics and background pollution.
