ABSTRACT
The purpose of this paper is to provide a summary of data on PAH content in soils in Poland, published in literature over the last 20 years. This paper presents a preliminary assessment of soil contamination by PAHs for different land use patterns.
A review of available literature highlights the need to continue research on PAH contamination levels in environmental media in Poland, including surface soil. Results of such research would be important in order to better define exposure estimates in the general population and to examine the relationship between levels of PAHs in thc environment and thc subsequent development of health effects.
