Maliszewska-Kordybach classified the contamination of PAHs in soils into four levels according to the PAH content in soil in Europe: no contamination (<200 pg/kg), slight contamination (200-600 [micro]g/kg), moderate contamination (600-1,000 [micro]g/kg), and heavy contamination (>1,000 [micro]g/kg).
