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.
