Abstract:In the paper trends of precipitates acidity, acidifying compounds wet deposition and emission on the territory of Belarus in the last decade are considered. Trend of acidity of precipitates in 90^th on the territory of Belarus was detected. But at the same time heterogeneity of measurement sites was revealed. For 90^th statistically approved trend of sulphur deposition reduction have been showed. The intensity of deposition of nitrates has great heterogeneity. Levels of deposition of sulphur and nitrogen on the territory of Belarus in the long-term scale as a whole correlate with levels of SO_2 and NO_x emission on territory of Europe. This is due to the fact that peculiarities of geographical situation of Belarus have caused prevalence of transboundary component in structure of atmospheric depositions.
