Short description: This text aims to summarize the state of the art of soil pollution, identify the main pollutants and their sources affecting human health and the environment, and discuss pollutants that are present in agricultural systems and reach humans through the food chain. Several case studies of available techniques for assessing and remediating contaminated soils comprise the final chapter. This book has been developed within the framework of the Global Symposium on Soil Pollution (GSOP18), identifying the main gaps in knowledge on soil pollution worldwide and serving as a basis for future discussions.
