The influence of the Tomsk city on the chemical and disperse composition of surface atmospheric aerosols has been estimated by means of carrying out several continuous measurement campaigns at two different sites (urban and rural). It is shown that the determining factors in formation of aerosol field over a moderate city are the prehistory of air masses and the activity of erosion processes in summer.
