ABSTRACT
The main objective of this paper is to establish inter-element relationships for soils around the Iron and Steel Integrated Works (ISIW) at Galati, Romania, using Energy Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) atomic technique. In this work the correlation matrices are presented for some major and minor elements (As, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, Rb, Sr, V and Zn) in the soil samples collected in the vicinity of the ferrous metallurgical plant in Galati county, which have been quantified in previous researches using a NITON EDXRF spectrometer from “Dunarea de Jos” University of Galati. Also, the concentrations for some elements are compared with those obtained using XRF technique at Environment Protection Unit of ISIW, the results for Fe, Mn and Rb using the two methods being strongly correlated.
