The data on quality of atmospheric air was analyzed in the article. Dependence of diseases such as bronchitis, pneumonia, lungs’ emphysema and other respiratory illnesses from atmospheric air pollution was established. The monitoring results give the opportunity to find the reason and degree of danger, prognosis of further changes and also possible consequences for population. Snow covering is used in this work as an object of atmospheric conditions monitoring; it is considered as an integral indicator of atmospheric pollution on the territories characterized by availability of fixed snow covering during the long period. Snow covering having the property of pollutants accumulation, which are absorbed on the surface of crystals in the process of falling, is used as indicator of atmospheric pollution. Studying the dynamics of mercury atmospheric air pollution on the city territory during the winter period on the base of chemical analyses of snow covering in 2014-2016 gave chance to separate out the city districts which are affected by mercury pollution.
