Arsenic in the soil environment has gained renewed interest because of the emerging acknowledgement that arsenic accumulation in rice is a global concern. This review reflects the current state of research being provided to the understanding of arsenic in the soil environment with an emphasis on arsenic uptake in rice.

Source, distribution, toxicity and remediation of arsenic in the environment containing arsenic also contributes to the emission of arsenic into the atmosphere [3] (see Figure 1(AB)).

Natural sources such as volcanoes can contribute to the release of arsenic. Arsenic pollution and toxicity. Arsenic (As) contamination in soil and water is a growing problem worldwide, and millions of people face the risk of cancer and poisoning due to As in their drinking water and food supplies.

Arsenic is both a carcinogen and a toxin, and is damaging to most human organs (Kaiser, ). Arsenic (As), an ubiquitous element known for its toxicity to biota naturally occurs in several oxidation states between –III and +V.

Total As concentrations in the soil solid phase range between Arsenic Treatment Technologies for Soil, Waste, and Water This report contains current information on the treatment technologies for wastes and environmental media containing arsenic. It summarizes information on 13 technologies used to treat arsenic, identifies sites and facilities where arsenic treatment has been used, and provides references.

Arsenic is a semi-metal element that occurs naturally in the environment, but can also be. Tubewells are the main source of drinking water in rural areas and at least 50 million people in Bangladesh are exposed to arsenic through drinking water collected from such sources.

Arsenic has found its way into soil, plants, and food items due to arsenic-tainted water, which is often used for irrigation.

The degree of groundwater arsenic contamination by aforesaid anthropogenic sources is much less as compared to the natural sources; however, their contribution cannot be neglected.

Arsenic in groundwater exists primarily as oxy anions representing two oxidation states: arsenic (arsenite) and arsenic (+V) (arsenate) [34, 35].Cited by: Arsenic can also be introduced into the groundwater anthropogenically through the application of the arsenic-rich herbicides and pesticides that are frequently used on agricultural lands.

How does arsenic enter the environment?

Description Arsenic in Soil and Groundwater Environment, Volume 9 EPUB

Arsenic enters water sources through erosion of natural deposits in rocks. It is also present from industrial output, such as burning of arsenic containing compounds, and agriculture waste by-products.

Arsenic dissolves in water and may be present in groundwater, lakes, and rivers.Arsenic (As) toxicity in soil and water is an increasing menace around the globe.

Its concentration both in soil and environment is due to natural and anthropogenic activities. Rising arsenic concentrations in groundwater is alarming due to the health risks to plants, animals, and human beings. Anthropogenic As contamination of soil may result from mining, milling, and Cited by:
