As a result of many years of research on environmental parameters in Kyrgyzstan, the main sources of radioactive and toxic matter contaminations have been established. The territory of Kyrgyzstan is constantly exposed to pollution by radionuclides caused by stratospheric, tropospheric, and local atmospheric fallouts. The other sources are the uranium tailings located at some places, which are a real threat for the environment and human health.Some methodological questions about the influence of geophysical conditions on the territorial distribution of contaminations have been considered. The tropospheric mechanism of contamination transfer for different seasons of the year has been suggested.
