The soils of West Siberia middle taiga oil deposits and a predictive estimate of contamination hazard with organic pollutants



Regularities of distribution of the background soils of oil deposits in the middle taiga of West Siberia have been studied and the features of their morphogenetic and physicochemical properties have been revealed. It has been experimentally substantiated that soil contamination hazard with oil components depends on the position of soil in the elementary landscape-geochemical systems (ELGS), on the granulometric composition, and buffer capacity. The results may be used to perform soil ecological monitoring and soil revegetation.
