    Two soil samples were collected at each collection site (i.e. camera). For the first sample, we collected 20 cross-sections of the trail soil surface (depth of 2 cm), every 2 m for 10 m in each direction from the camera, each filling a 50 ml Falcon tube, for a total of 1 l mixed In order for soil to be reliably protected, its status must be monitored continuously over extended periods. Soil data allows for the early detection of soil status and function related changes and damage, which in turn form the basis for elaboration of the necessary measures. Following is a list of the main federal projects and instruments in this ://

    The biomass in the straw amended soil had a similar C:S (85–) to that of the unamended soil but was narrower (40–) in the rape-amended soil. By day 5, SO4-S in both of the amended   Soil monitoring, within the approvals program, is directed primarily to the assessment of contaminants that have been released to the soil surface. Thus, subsurface facilities are generally not the reason for soil monitoring, but may be the reason for groundwater monitoring. However, where soil contamination is known or suspected to originate

    Land degradation is due to a mix of predisposing factors (thin soil horizons, low soil organic matter, sparse vegetation cover, etc.) frequently accentuated by human mismanagement and periodic drought. As a crucial component of terrestrial ecosystems, soil plays a prominent role in triggering or exacerbating land :// Applications involve precision agriculture, geological prospecting, and monitoring of soil and water contamination. The need for field spectroscopy by many users encouraged electro-optic companies to design and manufacture portable spectrometers for easy operation, resulting in a significant increase in the number and activities of these ://

Introduction. Contamination of soils by crude oil and other related products has become a worldwide problem.

Crude oil hydrocarbons may be released to soil as a result of accidental spillage (e.g., pipeline ruptures, tank failures) or aerial deposition of partially combusted oil particles (Wang and Bartha, ).Both may often be large-scale events (Al-Daher et al., ). Metals are highly persistent in the soil with persistence of up to thousands of years (Mc Grath, ) and can express their pollutant potential directly on the soil organisms by availability to plants and transference to the food chain, both by plants and by the contamination of superficial waters or groundwater (Chang et al., ).

It is sensitive to soil degredation and can be used for the early detection of adverse impact of management practices (Askari and Holden,Sparling, ). Soil respiration was also used for assessing and monitoring the effect of heavy metal contamination (Kaurin and Lestan, ). The role of soil erosion in the movement of contaminants.

As illustrated by the examples described in this paper, source identification is one use of soil gas sampling.
