The radionuclide composition of the atmospheric precipitations (rain and snow) fell out on the territory of the South of the Western Siberia in 2016-2017 was studied. It is shown that, the maximum of deposition of 7Be and 210Pb were observed in a foothill zone (618 and 171 Bq/m2), the minimum in the Alpine zone (104 and 27 Bq/m2), for the forest-steppe zone these values are 237-340 Bq/m2 and 73-93 Bq/m2. Deposition density of 137Cs in comparison with 210Pb and 7Be is small and does not exceed 1 Bq/m2. Average values of total specific activities of 210Pb and 7Be in rain waters are 242 and 2434 mBq/l, in the snowmelt 506 and 1611 mBq/l. 7Be/210Pb activity ratio in rain waters more than three times higher, than in snowmelt: 10,1 to 3,2. The highest values of 7Be/210Pb activity ratios are observed in the finest fraction (<0.45 µm) of the suspended matter: 19 in rain and 10 in snowmelt waters.
