The Landscape Geochemistry Conception aims to study the distribution of chemical elements, basic regularities of their migration in all components of European Russia (ER) and affected by natural and anthropogenic factors, at local, regional and global levels for any period. These parameters are determined by the type of peat geochemical landscape (PGL) as follows:
– PGL of low annual temperature and plain relief;
– PGL of increased hydrodynamic activity;
– PGL of highly-mineralized water supply. Correlation between the hydrochemical background level of an element and its accumulation in peat is found to be the general regularity; for example distribution of Ge, U, and 137Cs.
