Trace elements in dust samples from Warsaw road tunnels.
A b s t r a c t . The contents of Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, S, V and Zn in road dust samples taken from the inside of seven road tunnels in the area ofWarsaw by ICP-OES technique were quantified. These deposits are characterized by high content of copper (ranging from 44 to 387 mg/kg) and contents of chromium (15–36 mg/kg), nickel (9–17 mg/kg), lead (19–37 mg/kg) and zinc (101–258 mg/kg) increased in comparison to those typical of soils in the Polish Lowlands. In turn, the examined dust samples contain cadmium, cobalt and vanadium in concentrations close to the average for soils in this region.
