Soil pollution: Special Issue published on the Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Journal

The special issue entitled “Global approaches to assessing, monitoring, mapping, and remedying soil pollution” reflects some examples of the research presented during the Global Symposium on Soil Pollution (GSOP18) held at the Headquarters of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in Rome from 2 to 4 May 2018. 


This special issue contains five contributions on the assessment, distribution, and remediation of different soil contaminants that pose significant risks in different regions of the planet. The editors hope that this SI can be of use to young and experienced scientists to continue to improve our understanding of the complex processes that control the fate of contaminants in ecosystems, including soil, water, and plant interactions.

This SI also aims to highlight different soil remediation techniques specific to different contaminants and thus motivate other researchers to continue to develop better, more environmentally friendly, sustainable, and effective methods of managing and remedying polluted environments.
