Abstract

Relationships between chemical constituents in atmospheric aerosol and precipitation water samples G. Kmiec, K. Kacperczyk Institute of Environment Protection Engineering, C/mrerazZ?/ o/ 1/Kroc/a^ (50- (970 ABSTRACT The occurence of cloud at ground level over hills is particularly difficult to categorize and quantify in mountainous terrain, and has constituted a basic part of our studies as described below. Precipitation/deposition samples and the daily atmospheric aerosol measurements were collected in Sudety Mountains during 1988-1992 to determine concentration levels of atmospheric species and major cations, an ions, pH in rainwater. Correlations between chemical species and precipitation water samples were coupled with meteorological data at the measurement network. The influence of altitude on rainfall compositions as a consequence of washout of hill cloud by falling rain (seeder- feeder scavenging) was investigated at the Ka
