The elemental composition and percentage of soluble and insoluble fractions of atmospheric precipitations has been measured at three stations of continuous atmospheric monitoring situated under different physical-geographic conditions. In addition, the degree of the anthropogenic impact has been assessed. It has been found that the fraction of insoluble components prevails in urban regions, while that of soluble components prevails in rural regions.
