In different seasons of the year, the iron and mercury concentration levels in liquid and solid phase were studied in the troposphere above the Azov Sea waters, its coasts, and some cities of the Rostov Region. These levels in hydrometeors depend on seasons, sampling places, wind activity, rain and snow precipitation.
