Geochemical map of western and souther part of Serbia covers an area of about 30 000 km2 and also basins of rivers Ibar, Western Morava, Kolubara, Drina and Grand Morava. Representative samples from relevant profiles were collected according to WEGS (Western European Geochemical association). Samples were collected at the A-horizon at a depth of 15-20 cm from the ground surface; OB-overbank sediments at the depth of 80-100 cm and S-modern stream sediment. Geochemical mapping of lithological members was performed at 66 locations. The contents of natural radionuclides238 U,232 Th and40 K were analyzed. The results are shown on maps at a scale of 1: 1000000. Preserved geochemical record in the coastal profile of river flows will contribute to the assessment of anthropogenic impacts in the environment of rural settlements, particularly in the identification of geopathogenic zones of influence of natural radionuclides on human health. Research results have been shown on geochemical maps, di...agrams and tables.
