Abstract

This work presents the study of the elemental composition in the soluble fraction of snow from industrial cities of the Irkutsk Region (Angarsk, Irkutsk and Shelekhov). We detected tracer elements typical of snow in each of the cities. We also analysed morbidity in recent years and indicated the effect of air pollution on public health.
