Abstract (in english)
   The paper summarizes results of chemical analyses of fog and rime water samples. The samples were collected at Milesovka, the Czech meteorological observatory. The input data set contains the samples acquired during 234 fogs and 14 rime events. The fog and rime samples were collected in the period of 2000-2004. Methods employed for sampling fog and rime water and differences in the pollutant concentrations are described. The following components were analyzed: conductivity, acidity (pH), cations Na+, K+, NH4+, Mg2+, Ca2+, and anions F-, Cl-, NO3-, SO42-. The attention was exclusively devoted to the precipitationoriginating in fogs (no falling precipitation particles were considered). Differences in the relative content of selected ions in the annual average samples of rime and fog are presented together with their absolute values. The importance of rime contributions to total precipitation amounts is demonstrated by maximum values of the rime weight detected at the Milesovka Observator
