Assessment of Soil Heavy Metal Cu, Zn and Cd Pollution in Beijing, China
The soil heavy metal pollution have be paid more attention because the sources of soil heavy metals become multiple and complicated with the accelerated urbanization. According to this research, the order of spatial distribution of soil heavy metal Cu, Zn and Cd pollution in Beijing shows that: the center district > suburb > outer suburb. The soil pollution by Zn is more serious in Beijing and the grade of the soil Zn pollution has reached highest in the central district. By comparison, the soil pollution by Cu and Cd is slight, the soil in central district, Chaoyang, Changping and Miyun has caught light Cu pollution, and only in center district, Chaoyang and Fengtai has caught light Cd pollution.
