PUBLICATION: Lichens, snow and PM10 for identification of air pollution sources in Ostrava region

An integrated approach using different environmental samples for metal concentration and Pb isotope analyses was applied. In particular, snow samples are the most suitable for tracing recent local pollution, particulate matter PM10 for evaluation of current pollution sources, while lichens represent tracers of long-term pollution.
