Abstract: In situ measurements were performed by means of the diffusive gradients in thin films (DGT) technique in order to characterize the sewage sludge amended soil from one representative sampling site in the Czech Republic, included in the monitoring investigations. This technique reflects actual metal ion concentrations in soil solution, the rate of metal resupply from soil solids to soil solution, and the transport rate of metal ions through the soil. The DGT technique is likely to provide a good surrogate for a metal pool in contaminated soils, which might be available for a metal uptake by a plant root system.
