Paper Abstract

The trace measurements of SO2 and NO2 mean concentration in the surface layer of Moscow atmosphere are described. They revealed strong seasonal dependencies of SO2 and NO2 concentrations on various factors, which are discussed. The simultaneous measurements of the levels of nitrogen dioxide in Moscow atmosphere by the method which uses scattered sunlight and by the trace method conducted in February 1992 gave an opportunity to evaluate the height distribution of NO2. The obtained values for the effective height of NO2 distribution (200 - 400 m) are explained on the basis of the typical height of lower boundary of temperature inversion layer.
