Spatial variability of heavy metal concentration in urban pavement joints – A case study
Dataset: heavy_metal_pollution_indice_data.xslx Dataset description: Concertation of trace metals (Al, Fe) and heavy metals (V, Cr, Co, Ni, Cu, Sn, As, Cd, Pb) given in mg/kg soil dry weight and calculated pollution indices (Igeo: Geoaccumulation Index; PLI: Pollution load index; RI: Potential ecological risk index). For methods of analyses and index calculation see method chapter in above mentioned publication Dataset: pavement_joint_features_Marburg_city.xlsx Dataset description: Features of pavement joints in the inner-city of Marburg (Hesse, Germany) recorded during field work. Distance_street: Distance (m) of each sampling point to next street. Height: Heigth (m a.s.l.) taken from DEM. Av_joint_size: Average joint size (cm) from 1 square meter pavement measured during field work. Plant_coverage: Plant coverage classified from 0 to 5. For further description of classes see above mentioned publication. Runoff:_accumulation: Runoff accumulation classified in three classes: 0 – 2.5 - 5. For further description of classes see above mentioned publication. pH: pH (KCl) values of pavement joint soil material. OM: Organic matter content (mass-%) of pavement joint soil material.
