While it is usually believed that rainwater is safe for drinking purposes, many studies have explored the existence of trace metals in harvested rainwater, which can impose a serious health risk to human beings when present in relatively high concentrations. The concentration of trace elements in atmospheric precipitation including rainwater also provides a good indication of the environmental pollution caused by anthropogenic activities.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Copyright (published version):||2021 the Authors||Keywords:||Atmospheric pollution; Land-use patterns; Rainwater; Bangladesh||DOI:||10.5194/egusphere-egu21-635||Other versions:||https://www.egu21.eu/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||The EGU General Assembly (vEGU21), Virtual Conference, 19-30 April 2021||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ie/|
