Guidelines for sampling in urban areas

General guidelines for the sampling of soils from different types of land surface within the urban environmental have been drawn up. Sampling regimes appropriate to large, visually homogeneous areas of land, roadsides, riverbanks, and sealed surfaces are proposed. Recommendations are also provided for sample pre-treatment and storage. Protocols must be selected on the basis of the analytes of interest and purpose of the urban soil study.
