Record #167172:

Relationships and significance of contaminants in soils of the Transantarctic Mountains / I.B. Campbell, D.S. Sheppard, G.G.C. Claridge.

Title: Relationships and significance of contaminants in soils of the Transantarctic Mountains / I.B. Campbell, D.S. Sheppard, G.G.C. Claridge.
Author(s): Campbell, I. B.
Sheppard, D. S.
Claridge, G. G. C.
Date: 2003.
In: Polar Record. (2003.), Vol. 39(211) (2003)
Abstract: Summarises soil contamination studies at Scott Base, Vanda station and Marble Point, and discusses significance of results. Behaviour of contaminants conforms to existing knowledge of soil properties. In presence of some summer water or occasional moisture from snowmelt soluble contaminants may be transported both downwards and laterally through soils. Ice-cemented permafrost restricts downward movement but may aid distribution via lateral flow, especially for low-freezing-point contaminants such as hydrocarbons, which may also penetrate deeply into dry-frozen soils. Values for heavy metal contamination of sites investigated were typically above those for undisturbed sites. Presence of solid materials such as particles of plastics, wood, fibre, etc. in soils was widespread, and as foreign and non-degradable matter represent pernicious form of contamination.
