The chemical characteristics of rainfall and its seasonal variation at the EMEP (The Cooperative Programme for Monitoring and Evaluation of the Long-Range Transmission of Air Pollutants in Europe) station located in Cubuk, Ankara were studied for the period between September 1994 and December 1996. The station is located in a rural area about 50 km north of Ankara and is considered as a background station for air pollution. The rainwater samples collected were analyzed for pH, major ions concentrations and conductivity.
