Assessment of environmental and health risks of arsenic in agricultural soils

Abstract

Within the framework of the Agri As project, assessment of risks to health and the environment from arsenic in the agricultural soils and recipient water bodies is being carried out. Criteria for risk assessment from different organizations and countries have been collated, and an exposure model for arsenic in agricultural soils is being developed. The exposure model will be applied to assess the present-day situation at two test sites where elevated arsenic concentrations are found in agricultural soil. The model will also be used to assess the risk reduction achieved by proposed methods of amelioration and treatment.
