Abstract: Mosses and soil have been assessed by using the total deposition of metals deriving from authropic origin. Samples have been taken from 23 sites within an area surrounding the country of La Spezia and having an area of 900 km2. The concentration values of a series of elements determined in both moss and soil samples from different sampling stations nas allowed for the area mostly exposed to dustfall being identified. Inside an inner circle of 5 km radius from the power station the concentration of Hg, Cd, As, Cu, Co, S and V were found to be 3-10 fold higher than the average values of the entire test area. The results show that mosses appear the best bioaccumulators indicating reliably the atmmospheric outfall.
