Abstract:

A field survey and laboratory analysis carried out on “Depth wise Distribution of Heavy Metals in Different Soil Series of Northwestern India” was conducted during 2017-18 in five well established soil series which are comes under Aeolian and upper alluvial plain of Hisar district. The profile samples up to depth of 90 cm. i.e. 0-15, 15-30, 30-60, 60-90 cm, using GPS were collected and analyzed for total concentrations of heavy metals (Pb, Cr, Cd, Co and Ni). The total lead content was initially increased with depth then further decreased in Balsamand. In Isarwal and Rawalwas it was increased with depth but in Barwala decreased with depth. In Ladwa soil series first increased then decreased. The total chromium content of Balsamand first increased with depth then decreased. In Isarwal and Rawalwas it was decreased with depth. In Barwala and Ladwa series initially decreased then further increased. The total cadmium of Balsamand and Isarwal first increased with depth then decreased. In Isarwal increased and decreased in Barwala. In Ladwa series initially decreased then further increased. The total cobalt was increased with depth in Balsamand, Isarwal and Rawalwas series. In Barwala decreased with depth and in Ladwa increased first then decreased. The total nickel content was increased with depth in Balsamand, Isarwal and Rawalwas series. In Barwala decreased with depth and in Ladwa first increased then further decreased. The non uniform distribution of total heavy metals contents were found in all series.
