Limited record or data about the contents of heavy metal in the atmosphere within the industrial sector in Malaysia has given a platform to perform a research about the impact of anthropogenic activity. Heavy metals are increasingly released into environment due to the rise in anthropogenic activities such as industrialization. Heavy metals are released into the atmosphere and finally deposited by wet and dry deposition into soils. This research focuses on the heavy metal contents in the atmosphere at industrial and non-industrial areas. In this research, samples of soils, acts as a medinm to investigate the contents of heavy metals in atmosphere. The soils samples are taken from industrial and non-industrial areas and analyzed using Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (F AAS). The result from the samples will give the total concentration of heavy metal content in the atmosphere and compared between all samples taken from the industrial and non-industrial areas. This research may reflect the anthropogenic activity of industrialization and its impact towards the environment. This research will also provide the data of heavy metal concentration levels and can be future references that indicate the level of heavy metal in the environment at industrial and non-industrial areas.
