Short description: This review report is one of three reports prepared under Phase I of a project on mapping of diffuse soil pollution in urban areas. The overall objective is to prepare methods to optimise and simplify investigations and to summarise present knowledge concerning sources of pollution and soil investigations. 
Long description: In this literature study, five conceptual pollution models describing diffuse soil pollution have been defined. Information was collected concerning the following aspects: • Town development and infrastructure • Typical industrial sources. • Investigations of pollutant emissions. • Investigations of diffuse soil pollution. • Statistical data treatment. The chronological time-frame for emissions is important and a detailed historic description is a prerequisite for the mapping and documentation of diffuse soil pollution. Diffuse soil pollution is often the summation of a range of different contributions from different sources. The most critical sources of diffuse soil pollution are assessed to be deposition from nearby point or line sources associated with soil utilisation, e.g. urban activities. The soil utilisation not only refers to industrial activities, but also urban age, culture layer in old city areas, type of soil fill in earthworks, soil cultivation, terrain levelling, land reclamation, demolition and town fires. Typical pollution parameters in urban soils are PAH, oil, heavy metals; Pb, Cu, Zn, Ni, Hg, Cr and Cd. Furthermore, PCB and dioxins can be potential contaminants. Statistical and geostatistical data methods are useful techniques for investigations of diffuse contaminated soils.
