Cadmium, Lead, Tin and Zinc in topsoil of Santiago (Chile): Spatial patterns and health risks for children

Antonio Aruta, Linda Daniele, Claudia Cannatelli, Benedetto De Vivo, Annamaria Lima, Stefano Albanese

In this paper we presented the statistical information and spatial distributions of Pb, Zn, Cd and Sn obtained from the analyzes conducted on 121 topsoil samples from the city of Santiago. Results show essentially the anthropogenic impact that required an additional children health risk assessment for Pb exposure for both its toxic or carcinogenic effects. Keywords: Environmental geochemistry; IDW multifractal; Risk analysis
