The methodology of research of geochemical structure of anthropogenically changed landscapes is presented in the paper. This methodology is based on: 1) research of natural characteristics of modern landscape-geochemical systems, 2) analysis of kinds and intensity of anthropogenic impact, 3) identifying trends of changes of geochemical parameters of landscape- geochemical systems and their components under conditions of anthropogenic pressure, 4) geospatial representation of changes of geochemical structure of landscapes. The methodology is developed and tested by applying it to research of geochemical structure of landscapes of Western Podillya.
