Urban soils as a source and sink for pollution : towards a common european methodology for the evaluation of their environmental quality as a tool for sustainable resource management


The aim is to identify soil quality parameters and their use in urban areas to provide local, national and European authorities with decision support tools for sustainable planning and management of the soil resource in European cities. A comprehensive database of environmental and socio-economical data will be compiled, and general soil description parameters will be determined, as well as specific data for various inorganic and organic pollutants. A Decision-Support Tool for evaluation of soil quality will be developed, validated, and offered to local administrations for the correct planning and sustainable management of the soil resource.
