Maps of annual precipitation-weighted mean concentrations and deposition
are available for NTN and MDN. The maps are available as PDF images and as KMZ files.
About the maps
In 2011, the NADP Technical Committee instituted changes in the way NADP annual concentration and deposition maps are produced. It was decided to modify the original map series from a discrete contour map style to a continuous color gradient map style while incorporating an external, highly resolved precipitation dataset.
More information about the process used to create these maps is available.
NADP's Total Deposition Science Committee (TDEP) has developed total deposition (wet + dry) maps using a hybrid approach that combines measured air concentration and wet deposition data and modeled deposition velocity and dry deposition data.
The animated maps display the National Trends Network (NTN) concentration and deposition maps from 1985 to 2012 for sulfate, nitrate, and ammonium and the deposition maps for nitrogen from nitrate and ammonium. PDF and PowerPoint versions are available.
