Abstract (in english)
   Compositions of organic matter in soil and sediment samples were analysed using standard geochemical analytical methods. The tested set contained 44 lake sediment samples from three depth profiles on the bottom of the Horní Bečva reservoir and 14 samples of uncultivated soil from shallow profiles in localities of interest: Potočník, Lelekovice and Červenohorské Sedlo. Organic matter was characterised by determinations of individual carbon fractions/forms, by customary analyses of group parameters (Hum, EOM, TES, NES, AOX-S) and also by multicomponent analyses of contents and distributions of individual selected hydrophobic organic pollutants ? normal and isoprenoid alkanes, PAH, PCB and OCP. Characteristics of the organic matter were then used in a parallel investigation of sorption properties of some of the samples. Results of pollutant analyses were also evaluated and discussed with respect to Czech national legislation limits for permissible pollution of the environment.
