  Article:   MINERALOGICAL CHARACTERISATION AND HEAVY METALS ASSESSMENT OF SOILS FROM URBAN RECREATIONAL AREAS IN CENTRAL TRANSYLVANIA .

  Abstract:   Forty-five soil samples collected from fifteen intensively visited recreational areas in four different sized urban settlements in central Transylvania, Romania were investigated through X-ray powder diffraction for mineralogical characterization and analyzed using atomic absorption spectrometry in order to identify Cd, Cu, Co, Pb, Zn, Mn and Ni contamination. Pollution indexes were calculated and revealed that one-third of the recreational areas studied requires immediate remediation measures in order to reduce potential risks for human health.

Keywords: urban soil, recreational areas, mineralogy, heavy metals
