The article is devoted to the results of monitoring of the pollution of the atmospheric air by 26 observation points based in 8 large industrial cities of Azerbaijan. The observations were carried out by 18 harmful substances, including dust, sulfur dioxide, soluble sulfates, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide (IV), nitric oxide (II), hydrogen sulfide, soot, solid fluorides, hydrogen fluoride, mercury, ammonia, sulfuric acid, formaldehyde, phenols, furfural in the atmospheric air. On the basis of the monitoring, concentrations of these substances are being defined.
