Abstract  

Aerosols samples in near-surface air of Granada (Spain) were collected on a weekly basis. The seasonal 210Pb and 7Be concentrations were determined during the five-year period, from October 1993 to September 1997. The elements, despite their different origin and their different distribution throughout the atmosphere, present the same seasonal variation. There was a tendency for a maximum during the summer season and a minimum during fall and/or winter. In this work, the concentration of 7Be and 210Pb and meteorological data have been used in order to determine the periods of the potential radioactive pollution. This study, also, shows that the deposition of 7Be occurs primarily by precipitation except during the investigation periods where precipitation was scarce and irregular.
