Managing Global Resources for a Secure Future

2017 Annual Meeting | Oct. 22-25 | Tampa, FL

317 The Role of Soils in Mitigating Environmental Contaminant Exposure Poster (includes student competition)

Poster Session
SSSA Division: Soil Chemistry
As populations expand and industrialization increases, the risk of human exposure to harmful chemicals rises. Soil serves as a natural filtration system for contamination, protecting humans from exposure to pollutants by degrading, immobilizing, or controlling their mobility and availability. The soil properties and geochemical processes that occur in the subsurface are essential in controlling the fate of contaminants and risk of human exposure. This session will explore recent research on the biogeochemical factors that mediate human exposure to contaminants, both natural and anthropogenic, including organic or inorganic compounds, engineered or natural nanomaterials, waste products, or other classes of contaminants.
