GEOGRAPHY OF NITRATE AND SULFATE ATMOSPHERIC WET DEPOSITION IN THE SOUTHERN ROCKY MOUNTAINS
Data from the National Atmospheric Deposition Program’s National Trends Network, the United States Geological Survey’s Rocky Mountain Regional Snowpack Chemistry Program and the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Air Markets Program were analyzed to identify spatial relationships amongst atmospheric wet deposition concentrations of nitrate and sulfate. The analysis relates atmospheric wet deposition, commonly known as acid rain, to two distinct variables—as a function of elevation and also as a function of proximity to major regional electricity generating stations. This ...
