NADP Science Committees
April 9, 2018
NADP Subcommittees
April 10-11, 2018
NADP Executive Committee Meeting
April 12, 2018


Most initiatives, projects, and recommendations for Program change are developed by two standing technical subcommittees and three science committees that advise the Executive Committee

  • The Network Operations Subcommittee (NOS) oversees field-siting criteria and laboratory and sample collection protocols, and evaluates equipment and recordkeeping methods.
  • The Ecological Response and Outreach Subcommittee (EROS) provides input on data user needs, and initiates and develops programs and products to promote the program and increase participation.
  • The Critical Loads of Atmospheric Deposition (CLAD) Science Committees considers current and emerging issues regarding the science and use of critical loads for effects of atmospheric deposition on ecosystems in the United States.
  • The Total Deposition (TDEP) Science Committees works to develop methods to improve estimates of atmospheric deposition by advancing the science of measuring and modeling atmospheric wet, dry, and total deposition
  • The Aeroallergen Monitoring Science Committee (AMSC) brings together multi-disciplinary stakeholders in advancing the science of aeroallergen monitoring, including identifying emerging technologies, evaluating methods to ensure data quality, and coordination of monitoring stations.

NADP technical subcommittees will meet jointly and in separate sessions on April 10-11. Initiatives, critical reviews of network operations, and proposals for change often begin at these meetings. Science committees will meet on April 9.

Membership is open to individuals and institutions interested in any aspect of atmospheric deposition monitoring or research stemming from NADP data. Becoming a member is as simple as attending a meeting.
