Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
In risk assessment, environmental and human health protection is informed by scientific knowledge of hazard. For earth materials, including bedrock and its overlying mantle of unconsolidated mineral particulate, risk for geochemical hazard is based on element concentrations - numbers, established in biological testing.
In showing that hazard potential varies with mineralogy, and that mineral composition varies among geological terranes, geoscience shows that no single element concentration can establish a universal measure of acceptable risk in earth materials.
Risk assessment requires knowledge of sample grain size and mineral partitioning among grain size fractions, as well as of the wet chemical digestion used for analyses. In showing how geology affects both the measure of risk and its interpretation, geoscience also shows that regulatory approaches must evolve to accommodate the natural variability that is an inherent characteristic of earth materials.
As natural geochemical background variation - the reference level for industrial liabilities, originates in mineralogy, itsvariation may be simplified in terms of geological provenance, process, and past. For unweathered earth materials, geological maps and models establish a stable and deterministic reference framework for ecological hazard potential. With increase in weathering and soil formation, however, there is increasing need incorporate other natural sciences, including pedology and biology, in risk assessment.
