Abstract

There was considered the possibility of use the catalase activity as marker pattern and intensity of biological processes in soils in terms of oil pollution. There was showed that dependence of catalase activity on concentration of oil products is dual in nature, testifying the good information content of this indicator and its potential use in evaluating og oil-contaminated soils and environmental regulation. There was revealed a significant change in the activity of catalase (p<0.05) in spodozols with oil contamination level of 10 g/kg, in peat-spodozols humus-illuvial - 20 g/kg, the differences in the set values due to sorption properties of soils. When establishing the permissible content of oil products in spodozols applied non-linear regression model described by a logistic curve.
