The paper presents measurement data on transboundary transport of SO(2) and NO(2) to Poland through Brama Morawska. Due to the application of correlation spectrometer measurements, an oriented approach of pollutant loads assessment was possible. Annual loads of SO(2) and NO(2) inflow were found to be 105 x 1.0 E3 and 16 x 1.0 E3 tons, respectively. Emissions from Ostrava and Karvina districts as well as from the Dietmarovice power plant mostly caused these values. Pollutant plumes from Trzyniec seemed to inflow to Poland mainly through valleys of the Beskidy Mountains. It was found that there was no significant relationship between plume appearance recorded by correlative spectrometers and pollutants' concentration at ground level in the area 3-5 km from the Polish-Czech border.
