Classification of pedosphere pollution may present severe problems to professional environmentalists, e. g. in practical cases of assessing environmental impact measures associated with waste disposal sites. To enable prompt decisions or remediation actions, usually governmental institutions give strict guidelines for soil pollution assessment.
