Information - SSS9 Soils as a sink, regulator and source of diffuse pollutants
The fate and behaviour of diffuse pollutants in soil is important because of their persistence, bioaccumulation, and toxicity and their potential transfer to surface and ground waters. The session is aimed at those working on integrated approaches to elucidate the behaviour of binding and remobilization of pollutants in soil and the processes involved in their mobilization and transfer to water via surface and subsurface pathways. Key elements of the session will include the short and long term behaviour of pollutants in soils, their interaction with particulate and dissolved soil organic matter pools; microbiological transformations and influences on mobility, and the physical processes which govern pollutant transfer in dissolved and particulate phases. We explicitly encourage interdisciplinary contributions that tackle the soilís role as a sink and regulator for pollutants at both the lab and field scale.
