Aims and scope

The Journal of Soils and Sediments (JSSS) is devoted to soils and sediments; it deals with contaminated, intact and disturbed soils and sediments. JSSS explores both the common aspects and the differences between these two environmental compartments. Inter-linkages at the catchment scale and with the Earth’s system (inter-compartment) are an important topic in JSSS. The range of research coverage includes the effects of disturbances and contamination; research, strategies and technologies for prediction, prevention, and protection; identification and characterization; treatment, remediation and reuse; risk assessment and management; creation and implementation of quality standards; international regulation and legislation.

Potential authors are invited to check the contents of recent issues to determine whether their manuscript is suitable for JSSS.
