Abstract:The objective of the National Atmospheric Deposition Program/Atmospheric Integrated Research Monitoring Network (NADP/AIRMoN) for wet deposition is to detect, as rapidly as possible, air quality and deposition changes that result from emissions changes. This activity is being promoted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as part of its "Health of the Atmosphere" initiative, under guidance contained in the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 (CAAA)1, and as a contribution to the National Acid Precipitation Assessment Program (NAPAP)2. The NADP/AIRMoN program is designed to provide deposition information required to evaluate the progress of the emissions reductions mandated by the CAAA. NADP/AIRMoN started in October, 1992 to establish deposition levels prior to Phase I emission rollbacks in 1995. It will be necessary to continue sampling at least until early in the next century to determine the full impact of the CAAAs on deposition, which will not occur until after 2000.
