Abstract

Simultaneous soil acidification and deposition of heavy metal is a major concern for forest and agricultural soils of the Black triangle region of East Central Europe including southern former East Germany, northern Bohemia of the Czech Republic, and southern Poland. This paper develops historical and future projections of acid and heavy metal deposition to soils and produces a preliminary map of soil sensitivity to cadmium pollution and uptake by crops. The relative hazard and recovery times of soils to metals deposition in the region are assessed.
