Bio-indicators are also used in order to assess the environmental risks caused by air pollution, besides the methods of technical immission measurements. SYNLAB Environment uses rye grass and kale in order to conduct biomonitoring; i.e. standardised methods are used to plant monitors in the area under analysis and then removed again after a certain dwell period. Residue analyses are then conducted to calculate the proof of efficacy limits based on the concentrations of the substances under analysis; they are then compared with the measurement values, i.e. the mean values of the measurement points.
The location of the sampling points to take soil samples is defined based on four quadrants arranged in the site according to the frequency of wind directions.
In total, samples are taken from eight points arranged radially around the central point of the site, whereby four points are located four and seven metres respectively from the central point. The eight samples taken from the same soil horizons are used to produce a mixed sample, which is then analysed. Samples are taken using an electric sounding hammer and a 60 mm destructive core sensor.
The results of the analysis results are benchmarked (for each horizon) against the precautionary values stated in the Federal Soil Protection and Contaminated Sites Ordinance (BBodSchV).
