Methods for the processing of monitoring data on the concentration of chemical elements in winter aerosol in Altai Krai to determine their reference values are proposed. It is shown that the distribution of elements within the concentration logarithms is steady and recurs yearly during a 5-year period of observations. Methods for estimation of snow cover pollution by different elements in local sites and vast territories are proposed.
