Article
Natural processes cause sedimentation in local depressed surface zones of urban landscapes with the formation of micro water bodies (puddles). Urban puddle sediments are a geochemical trap for contemporary anthropogenic sediments. These sediments accumulate pollutants over the surface and over time. Samples of urban puddle sediments were collected...
Article
This paper presents a method for reconstructing the initial baseline relationship between potentially harmful element (PHE) and conservative element (CE) concentrations in urban puddle sediment samples. This method is based on an analysis of the relationship between PHE and CE concentrations in urban puddle sediment samples a considerable time afte...

Natural processes cause sedimentation in local surface depressed zones of the urban landscape with the formation of micro water bodies (puddles). The urban puddle sediments can be defined as a separate peculiar subtype of geochemical traps of the recent technogenic and anthropogenic sediments. Accumulation of pollutants over space and time is a rem...
Article
The (137)Cs-based chronological approach is suggested to identify the age of urban landscapes and the chronology of pollution of soil in residential areas. Three main pivot points constitute the basis of the chronological approach: beginning of the Atomic Era in 1945, the maximum input in 1963 and the Chernobyl accident in 1986. Application of (137...

Studies of gross alpha and gross beta activity in road- and surface-deposited sediments were conducted in three Russian cities in different geographical zones. To perform radiation measurements, new methods were applied which allow dealing with low mass and low volume dust-sized (2–100 μm) samples obtained after the size fractionation procedure. Th...
Preprint
Study of gross alpha (GA) and gross beta (GB) activity in road and surface deposited sediments were performed in various geographical areas in three Russian cities.

The study is aimed to find and identify particles of polymer materials in contemporary urban surface deposited sediments (USDS). USDS reflect changes in the geochemical conditions that occur in the environment, and the USDS accumulates microplastic along with other pollutants. The search and identification of microplastics was conducted by Raman sp...

Full-text available
Background: Sediment deposition in the urban environment affects aesthetic, economic, and other aspects of city life, and through re-suspension of dust, may pose serious risks to human health. Proper environmental management requires further understanding of natural and anthropogenic factors influencing the sedimentation processes in urbanized catc...
Article
Full-text available
Study of gross beta activity was conducted in Russian cities Ekaterinburg, Rostov-on-Don, and Nizhny Novgorod. The cities were characterized by continental climate, although they are located in different geographical zones. The bulk urban samples were fractionated with three size fractions: dust (0.002–0.1 mm), fine sand (0.1–1 mm), and coarse sand...
Article
Problem Statement. The relevance of the research is caused by the need to study the processes of contemporary sedimentation in urban area, which reduce the quality of urban environment and have negative impact on the environmental state. The objective of the study is to determine the role of bad road periods in fall, spring, and summer. The materia...
Chapter
The study is aimed to assess the composition and properties of solid material supply to the environment from vehicles. The study was conducted in the area of an ice race track located on the surface of a lake located at a significant distance from the stationary sources of pollution. The sampling was conducted on February 27, 2019. The samples of s...
Article
Problem Statement. Urban grounds have an artificial origin, they are formed as a result of construction activities, contain solid waste products and pollutants along with natural mineral and organic raw materials. Not all the cities have a system of registration of the urban ground types. The assessment of the pollution degree of urban grounds play...

This paper presents results of an analysis of potentially harmful elements (PHEs, Pb, Zn and Cu) and conservative element (CE, Fe) concentrations in urban surface deposited sediment (USDS). The study was conducted in seven large Russian cities located in different geographic and climatic zones, and in territories with different geology and anthropo...
Article
A passive technique using solid-state nuclear track detectors was developed to detect the low-level gross alpha activity (Aα) in low-mass size-fractionated (< 10 g) samples of urban surface deposited sediment. The measurement system was calibrated using a source containing thorium monazite. The method was applied to measure radioactivity of the sam...
