Maintenance of a rural precipitation chemistry center at Whiteface Mountain

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

For the Past 11 years, Whiteface Mountain (WFM) has been successfully collecting data according to the MAP3S (Multistate Power Production Pollution Study) protocols. These protocols include field sampling, laboratory procedures, sample handling and shipment, and supporting measurements at the summit or lodge including meteorological and air quality parameters. All blind tests and audits have been successfully passed. Since the beginning of the MAP3S program it was recognized that, because of its remoteness, WFM needed some additional support to process the samples and to obtain site specific supporting data. The primary purpose of this funding was to insure the technical support ... continued below

Description

For the Past 11 years, Whiteface Mountain (WFM) has been successfully collecting data according to the MAP3S (Multistate Power Production Pollution Study) protocols. These protocols include field sampling, laboratory procedures, sample handling and shipment, and supporting measurements at the summit or lodge including meteorological and air quality parameters. All blind tests and audits have been successfully passed. Since the beginning of the MAP3S program it was recognized that, because of its remoteness, WFM needed some additional support to process the samples and to obtain site specific supporting data. The primary purpose of this funding was to insure the technical support to maintain the availability of WFM so that the necessary high quality research monitoring could continue. In addition, during the past year, we were able to: (1) perform all operations required by the National Trends Network (NTN) precipitation monitoring network: (2) begin the comparison of MAP3S data with similar data taken at WFM; (3) begin a series of ion chromatography measurements on MAP3S duplicate samples (when sufficient volume was available) to study the effect of time delays between sample collection and chemical analysis: (4) provide wet deposition data to the EPA Mountain Cloud Chemistry Program (MCCP); (5) assess the precipitation data quality of the ENSR measurements collocated with MAP3S. Selected results are presents. 6 refs., 1 fig.
