Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The article presents the results of comparative studies on the uncontaminated (virgin) leached chernozem soil in terms of heavy metal contamination due to zinc plant operations. Study object location is given. The territory under the influence of plant emissions is devoid of vegetation. Everywhere on the soil surface there are manifestations of deep erosion processes and continuous erosion of the topsoil. Soil cuts with morphogenetic descriptions, physical, physico-chemical and biological characteristics of the soil were laid at the objects. The soil cover under the influence of pollution has undergone degradation and led to transformational processes of particle size distribution, humus content, absorbed bases, the elemental composition of the food regime of the soil, as well as on the vital activity of the soil biota.
