THE IMPACT OF AIR MASSES CIRCULATION ON SPECIFIC ELECTRIC CONDUCTIVITY OF PRECIPITATION WATER IN THE BYSTRZANKA CATCHMENT IN 1995-2004
This paper contains analysis of the specific electric conductivity (SEC) of precipitation water on the background air masses types, advection types and wind direction during 10-years measurements on the IG&SO PAS (IME Base Station) at Szymbark. The aim this analysis was evaluation of influence, which have different air masses, advection types and wind direction on the SEC of precipitation water in a long-term and possibility of location of potential air-pollution source. It.s ascertain the increase of the SEC during advections of anticyclonal air masses: polar-sea and polar-continental from south and south-eastern direction. Wind direct have a impact on delivering of pollution from nearby buildings.
