The National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP) is a 40-year old organization of federal, state, local, academic, tribal, and private entities who support operation of 5 national monitoring networks. Kentucky and Indiana operate 3 National Trends Network (NTN) sites as part of the National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP). Monitoring for NTN is consistent, standardized, high quality, documented, and freely available on the internet.
The National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP) is a 40-year old organization of federal, state, local, academic, tribal, and private entities who support operation of 5 national monitoring networks using uniform equipment, protocols, and a central laboratory. The NADP National Trends Network (NTN) has ~250 sites to measure inorganic precipitation chemistry in weekly composite samples to track deposition of acid rain constituents. USGS supports laboratory and field costs for more than half of the NADP NTN sites, some in cooperation with other agencies
IN-KY Water Science Center operates 3 NTN sites:
Precipitation is collected in an automated precipitation collector. Contents from the collector are collected by us then shipped to the NTN.
Characteristics & Constituent Concentrations Analyzed at the Lab
Constituent Concentration X Precipitation = Deposition
