Atmospheric pollutants total and wet deposition in the Kampinos Base Integrated Monitoring Station in years 2011 and 2012
Tomasz Śnieżek, Adam Olszewski
The pollution emitted into the atmosphere in anthropogenic processes is then transported and reaches ecosystems often distant from the sources of emission. Such emissions are one of the reasons for changes, and often degradation, of the natural environment. Research into this phenomenon is one of the ways to try and fnd measures to improve the condition of the environment in which we all live. Background Stations of the Integrated Environmental Monitoring System, operated as the Nature Protection subsystem of the State Environment Monitoring Program (ZMŚP), are used to measure the concentration levels and pollution loads that reach the ground. This paper contains an analysis and summary of the results of total and wet deposition of selected pollutants in atmospheric precipitation collected at the Kampinos Base Station in 2011–2013. The precipitation during that period was collected simultaneously in the total precipitation collector and the wet precipitation collector. The amount of precipitation was measured twofold: with a standard Hellmann rain gauge and on the basis of a sample collected in the wet precipitation collector.
