The concentration of 7Be in surface air at Nagano City has been measured during the period from August 2000 to March 2005. The average monthly concentrations of 7Be in surface air were in the range of 3.3–14 mBq/m3 with pronounced two peaks in spring and autumn. It took 30–40 hours to recover the 7Be concentrations observed before, once 7Be was washed out by wet precipitations. For a pronounced increase in the concentrations of 7Be found in winter, a low-pressure trough coming close to the Japanese Islands with high concentrations of 7Be is responsible under the characteristic distribution of atmospheric pressure around the Japanese Islands.
