Deposition Monitoring Task Group.]. National Trends Network The NTN is the only network providing a long-term record of precipitation chemistry across the United States.

Sites predominantly are located away from urban areas and point sources of pollution. Each site has a precipitation chemistry collector and gage. Atmospheric Integrated Research Monitoring Network. AIRMoN operated from until Samples were collected daily within 24 hours of the start of precipitation, often providing data for all or part of a single storm.

The National Trends Network was established to provide a long-term record of the amounts, trends, and geographic distributions of acids, nutrients, and base cations in precipitation.

Measurements include pH, conductivity, calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, sulfate, nitrate, chloride, ammonium, and precipitation amount. The National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP) is a year old organization of federal, state, local, academic, tribal, and private entities who support operation of 5 national monitoring networks using uniform equipment, protocols, and a central laboratory.

Summary. Background. The National Atmospheric Deposition Program/National Trends Network (NADP/NTN) is a nationwide network of over precipitation monitoring sites. The network is a cooperative effort between many different groups, including the U.S. Geological Survey, which has operated the Jordan Creek NADP/NTN Site (NC36) in Scotland County, North Carolina.

We review the major conceptual models of atmospheric moisture transport, which describe the link between evaporation from the ocean and precipitation over the continents.

We begin by summarizing some of the basic aspects of the structure and geographical distribution of the two major mechanisms of atmospheric moisture transport, namely low-level jets (LLJs) and Cited by: Monitoring of heavy precipitation forecasts.

These images show locations where the year recurrence interval for h precipitation is predicted to be exceeded by the NOAA Weather Prediction Center and various convection-allowing numerical models. These forecasts will almost certainly have errors, but it can provide guidance as to where the models are predicting.

Real-time monitoring of heavy precipitation These images show locations where the year recurrence interval for h precipitation has been exceeded. This is an automated search for the types of events discussed in Schumacher and Johnson (, ) and Stevenson and Schumacher (), using gridded precipitation analyses.

Precipitation efficiency is an important physical parameter for measuring the interaction between convection and its environment (Doswell et al., ; Ferrier et al., ; Tao et al., ).

Its definition may vary. For large-scale applications involving cumulus parametrization (e.g. Kuo,), the precipitation efficiency is defined as the ratio of the.

They are proud of their contributions to national and international monitoring networks. For example, precipitation is collected at the site as part of the National Atmospheric Deposition Program/National Trends Network, which monitors the chemical composition of precipitation, such as rain or snow, to determine trends in air and water quality.

Science and Technology. Various reports have discussed the critical role of urban meteorological observations and forecasting for various aspects of society, such as public health, public safety and security, transportation, water resource management, storm water runoff, and economic development.
