QUESTION: Effect of time and lead petrol phase-out on soil contamination, 23 Aug 2005,
I was wondering if your organisation has undertaken any research into the concentrations of lead in soils due to car exhaust. At current I am undertaking a semester long research into quantities of lead in soils on roadsides.
If you would be willing to send me some information on the topic of "Lead in soils due to car exhausts" or otherwise related information it would be much appreciated.
I myself am undertaking a academically based sampling operation of the roadsides in the ACT region. I will then be comparing this to a previous students project to see the effects time and lead out-phasing has had on soils.
If you are interested in the outcomes of my results I would be more than happy to share with you.

I will organise tomorrow for a volunteer to post you a couple of items from our library which I hope you will find useful:

Yes we'd love a copy of your study for our library - an electronic version by preference. Please let us know the web-address also if it is intended to be web-published.
