Variation of trace element concentration in rainwater with rainfall rate and rainfall amount
The variation in trace element concentration in rainwater with rainfall rate and rainfall amount for collections during monsoon at Lonavala and Bombay are discussed. The results confirm the known inverse relationship between concentration and rainfall rate as well as rainfall amount. The decrease in concentration with rainfall rate is related to increasing drop diameter and liquid water content of the precipitating cloud. Effect of washout on the trace element concentration in rainwater is not significant. The maximum to minimum concentration ratio is significantly less for I, K and Br as compared to other elements like Na, Cl, Ca or Mg.
