The book offers a review of the work of the Polish Research Group on selected topics of environmental magnetism:  the application of magnetic methods to study pollution of outdoor and indoor air, street dust, polluted soil, air filters and indoor dust; the use of magnetic properties to study pedogenic processes in soils and soil structure; as well as deposition processes in recent sediments. The authors focus on detailed cases and provide in-depth explanations of the causes of and relations between physical processes. The examples of different studies demonstrate how to apply magnetometry to solve problems in related disciplines, how to better understand the complexity of the magnetic structure of substances and mediums as well as how to trace interactions between the environment and natural and anthropogenic factors.

Magnetometric assesement of soil contamination in the vicinity of selected roads in Poland.- Magnetic study of sediments from the Vistula river in Warsaw - preliminary results.- Surface sediments pollution around small shipwrecks (Munin and Abille) in the Gulf of Gdansk: magnetic and heavy metals study.- From deserts to glaciers: magnetometry in paleoenvironmental studies in Central Asia.- Application of magnetic susceptibility measurements for identification of technogenic horizons in soil profiles on the example of the Vistula River Cross-Cut area.- Magnetic susceptibility of sediments as an indicator of the dynamics of geomorphological processes.- The impact of grain size composition and organic matter content on magnetic susceptibility of anthropogenically transformed bottom sediments, as exemplified by the former naval harbour in Hel.- Magnetic vertical structure of soil as a result of transformation of iron oxides during pedogenesis. The case study of soil profiles from Slovakia and Ukraine.
