Snow and rain chemistry around the "Severonikel" industrial complex, NW Russia: Current status and retrospective analysis

Kashulina, Galina; De Caritat, Patrice; Reimann, C.


The current (2005-2011) status of the chemical composition of snow cover and rain collected at a height of 1.5m above ground was studied within 11km around the Severonikel industrial complex, one of the largest SO2 and metal contamination sources in N Europe. In spite of a significant decrease in emissions during the past 20 years, Ni and Cu concentrations in snow remain extremely high near the source (2500 and 1500 times background values, respectively). Although showing a five- to six-fold...[Show more]
