Abstract

Results applying ordinary kriging and cokriging techniques as well as the turning bands simulation method to the survey of heavy metal pollution of the superficial layer (at the depth of 0-20 cm) of soil in a selected mining region of Upper Silesia (S Poland) are presented. The multivariate structural analysis, estimation and conditional simulation was performed on data coming from the regional monitoring of soils. Based on estimated and the simulated cadmium and zinc heavy metal soil concentrations, the most polluted zones and places in the Dabrowa Górnicza region, where environmental monitoring should be instituted again, were determined.
