This study focuses on the application of geostatistical simulation for the regional evaluation of topsoil concentrations of Cu and Cd over the entire area of Flanders. The objectives are : 1) to map geostatistically the regional patterns of topsoil Cu and Cd, 2) to delineate areas with a high probability of exceeding critical sanitation thresholds, and 3) to determine the potential sources responsible for the identified patterns. Mostly areas with known industrial activities (such as lead and zinc smelters) could be delineated, but the effects of shells fired during the First World War were also identified
