GEOCHEMICAL EVALUATION OF SURFICIAL SEDIMENTS: YORK COLLEGE CAMPUS, QUEENS, NEW YORK CITY AND STRATEGIES FOR REMEDIATION OF METAL TRACES IN AREAS IMPACTED BY LEAD PROCESSING ACTIVITIES IN SUBAE RIVER BASIN, BRAZIL
Research investigations always look for reliable results that can be used to explain or predict events. Preliminary testing of representative soil and sediment samples obtained from several shallow boreholes/trenches located within the York College campus was investigated by using routine mechanical sieving. The generated adequate and scientifically sound data was obtained on a set of representative soil samples as part of the investigation grain size investigations were conducted on several samples to evaluate mean, standard deviation, and skewness. This research also made it possible for us to understand the effect soil and sediment samples connection and how it affects the environment. The geochemical characterization by utilization of chemical data will be used for an overall understanding of groundwater chemistry in the York College campus area and,

Research investigations always look for reliable results that can be used to explain or predict events. Preliminary testing of representative soil and sediment samples obtained from several areas such as São Sebastião do Passé, Santo Amaro and São Francisco do Conde within the Bahia community will be investigated in the Soil Science Laboratory/Agronomy Laboratory by using X-ray Fluorescence and manual bench.
