Spatial and temporal trends of precipitation chemistry in the United States, 1985-2002

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

The National Atmospheric Deposition Program-National Trends Network (NADP-NTN) has measured the concentrations of acids, nutrients, and base cations in precipitation for more than two decades in the U.S. These trends in precipitation chemistry reflect changes in the chemical climate of the US. Significant increases were observed in much of the U.S. for ammonium and dissolved inorganic nitrogen. There were regionally-significant increases and decreases in nitrate.
