Abstract

This study analyzes modern approaches to the monitoring systems organization for heavy metals in the soil cover in urban areas. The current situation was considered in individual countries, as well as the organization features of the soil monitoring system in the Russian Federation and the city of Volgograd. The study results showed that in most foreign countries, monitoring of urban soils is currently one of the priority areas. The research system has a high level but is subject to improvement in certain areas. In most cities of the Russian Federation, monitoring researches on the content of heavy metals in soils are the unsystematic and nonperiodic feature and are usually associated with the implementation of thesis research or scientific projects. At the federal level, studies are conducted only in 33 cities, while the lists of identified elements vary significantly depending on the current industry specialization.
