All concentrations are given on a dry soil weight basis. Concentrations of organic pollutants are given in ng/g, concentrations of metals in ug/g and the organic carbon content is given in g/g. Concentrations below the detection limit were replaced by 0.5 * MDL (refer to the Supplementary Information for details). A concentration of zero means that the compound could not be quantified because of interferences. Zero-values should therefore be excluded from statistical analyses.
