|Abstract:||Bioindicators (transplanted mosses) and superficial soils were used to assess the mass of the potential heavy metal flows and their origin, that could interest the body of the landfill durign the different work phases. Three landfills were monitored in the hills of Reggio Emilia (Italy). Superficial soils and the technique of transplanted mosses belonging at Scleropodium purum (Hedw.) species were used. The concentrations of the elements were investigated (Al, As, Bi, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Hg, Mn, Mo, Ni, Pb, Sb, Ti, Tl, V, Zn, Pt and Rh) during two years in 15 stations to obtaining the flows of element depositions (gram/element/hectare area/year). The results obtained for the elements investigated using mosses and superficial soils did not emphasise any specific anomalies. The concentration values present a situation of absolute "normality", simila to areas low level of human activity or natural areas.|
