Intended use

Data may be used for environmental research including atmospheric deposition, ecosystem process, watershed studies, aquatic effects, terrestrial effects, and material effects.

Use limitations

As there is no "standard" network against which the NADP monitoring program can be measured, the network has attempted to estimate bias by comparing NADP data to those of other similar networks.
