Abstract

Background and anomalous rare earth element (RЕЕ) concentrations in poplar (Populus spp.) leaves in urban areas of Siberia, Russian Far East, and Kazakhstan were determined. Regions with the highest RЕЕ levels were identified. Ratios of light to middle RЕЕs are geochemical indicators of the impacts of oil refining and mining. Airborne dust transport by prevailing winds from ash and slag dumps of power plants and industrial sites, and alluvial terraces control the REE distribution in cities.
