Summary:In this paper, the pollution of anomalous elements in soil at Minhe-Haishiwan, Tibet, and its potential ecological hazards were evaluated quantitatively through the single factor pollution index, Nemerow pollution index, and Hakanson potential ecological risk index methods. Additionally, the ecological effect of the anomalous areas was also discussed. The results show that the pollution factors of heavy metals are in order of HgCdPb=Cr in the soil. The bioavailability of the anomalous elements follows the sequence of CdHgPb. The bioavailability of anomalous elements follows the sequence of CdHgPb. The potential ecological hazard of anomalous elements was as follows: HgCdPbCr. Although the concentration of anomalous elements in crops such as wheat and corn was far below the required food security limits, the pollution control situation was still severe due to the high potential ecological hazard of Hg and high bioavailability of Cd.
