Conference paper

The paper is devoted to the results of the eight-year study of the biogenic components of tropospheric aerosol in Southwestern Siberia at the altitudes up to 7,000 m. The most important among them are: the total protein as an indicator of all substances of biological origin and culturable microorganisms as a component, which is most harmful to man. The eight-year dynamics of mean annual values of the above concentrations, their annual variations and altitude profiles are presented. Possible sources of the observed bioaerosols are discussed.
