Abstract

The distribution of microelements in the snow cover in northern Kazakhstan has been studied. Also, using the data from previous studies the spatial distribution of microelements for the entire territory of Kazakhstan has been mapped. The areas of local pollution in snow cover in major industrial centers Chromtau, Zhezkazgan, Balkhash, and Shymkent have been identified.
