Abstract:

In this study, the geological, geochemical and anthropogenic distribution of heavy metal and toxic elements in the soil on the link roads and agricultural lands on the railroads of Sarayonu (Konya), which dates back to 4000 years ago, was examined. According to the results of the soil samples taken at 5, 25 and 50 meters perpendicular to the roadsides, AsIgeo, and HgIgeo elements were found as “unpolluted to moderately polluted”, EFZn, EFAs, and EFHg were found as “moderate enrichment” and contamination factor (Cf) was found as “pollution” at locations 1, 7 and 8. According to geochemical and statistical evaluations, the elements were divided into 3 groups as Ophiolite, Oxide, and Geo-anthropogenic. According to the evaluations, geochemical events and geological factors, as well as anthropogenic factors played an important role in the accumulation of heavy metals on agricultural lands.
