ABSTRACT
The opencast mines in the region of the North-Bohemian basin are and will be in the
close future step wisely closed. The planned and realized reclamation procedure in the foot of the Krušné hory (the Ore Mountains) is based on the constitution of the artificial lakes dedicated mainly to the recreation purposes. The hydrological reclamation represents considerable impact into the landscape, which will influences changes of microclimate, ecosystem and fresh-air quality. The evaluation of the fresh air quality in the remediated area of the Lake Most is one part of the complex project No. TA01020592 “Impacts of a hydrological open-cast mine reclamation on the
microclimate, fresh-air quality, water and soil ecosystems” solved in the frame of the
ALFA programme of the Technological Agency of the Czech Republic. The research is focused in the field of air quality on the assessment of the relevance of changes in air quality in the vicinity of the Lake, which occur as a result of changes of the
microclimate in the area. The project monitors the long-term deposition of pollutants,
which are characteristic for this industrial site -SO2, NOx, O3, VOC, BTX, dust fallout
and selected metals in dust fallout. The air sampling is carried out by passive technic.
In addition to the listed pollutants, the concentration of aerosol particles PM10 is
continuously measured in the second zone and on the background reference site.
