The article reviews the studies of snow cover abroad using the example of the cities of Poland. In two cities of Poland (Ostrovets-Swietokrzyskie and Poznan), the chemical composition of snow cover samples was determined using analytical equipment, and the physical parameters of the snow cover for the period 1952-1990 were determined from the data of meteorological stations in Poland (height of snow cover, period of snow cover, the first and the last days of the snow cover). The obtained results on the chemical composition of snow samples were compared with the background values provided by meteorological stations.
