European reference soils for sorption testing

Fresenius Environmental Bulletin 1(9): 589-594

European reference soils for sorption testing

Based on maps and data interpretation techniques five representative soils (two Cambisols, a Luvisol, a Podzol and a Rendzina) were identified as EC reference soils for testing the adsorption/desorption behaviour of new chemicals in the European Community. Sampling locations were in Italy, Greece, UK, France and Germany, and samples were treated and prepared according to OECD Test Guideline 106 and analysed, after shaking with different substances (lindane, 2,4-D and atrazine).
