Summary: The nikkel smelters in NW Russia close to the Norwegian border emit large quantities of sulphur dioxide (SO2) and heavy metals. These emissions lead to enhanced concentrations of environmental pollutants in the border areas, also at the Norwegian side of the border. This report is part of the national environmental monitoring program and includes air quality monitoring, precipitation chemistry and meteorology.
