Influence of peat fires on chemical composition of snow cover and surface waters

V.P. Shesterkin, N.M. Shesterkina, and Yu.A. Forina

We examine the influence of peat fires on chemical composition of snow cover and surface waters. It is shown that pyrogenic mineralization of peat brings about anomalous concentrations of nitrite and ammonium nitrogen in these objects of hydrosphere, and concentrations of chloride and sulfate ions, and sodium, calcium and magnesium ions in the water of quarries nearby pills of burnt peat, the levels of which by far exceed the fishery MAC values.
