Magnetic susceptibility is an important means to quickly and economically monitor the enrichment of surrounding environmental elements. As a regional central city on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, the relationship between atmospheric dust magnetic susceptibility and heavy metal content in Xining area is relatively lacking. In this paper, the magnetic susceptibility and geochemical element content of the collected dust samples, loess samples, surface soil samples and soil profile samples obtained through long-term observations are analyzed. The results show that the magnetic susceptibility of the dust-fall samples is the highest, the soil samples are the second, and the loess samples are the lowest; the magnetic susceptibility of the dust-fall samples in Xining City has a significant correlation with the elements Cd, Cr, Ni, Cu, Pb, Zn and Hg, and the magnetic susceptibility can be used as an indicator of heavy metal in the soil; the elements Cr, Ni, Cu, Zn and As in the soil profile are enriched at 20 cm or 30 cm, which is related to the leaching of surface elements.
