Abstract

This report documents the protocol for collecting, processing, and shipping precipitation samples as part of an investigation of the effects of acid rain on carbonate-rock building materials. The report is Chapter A of a manual for Task Group G site operators participating in the National Atmospheric Deposition Program. The effects of acid rain on carbonate-rock building materials are being investigated at four sites in the eastern United States: Washington, D.C.; Chester, New Jersey; Newcomb, New York; and Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. At each site, precipitation-runoff samples are collected from glass sheets, limestone and marble slabs, and blanks. Precipitation samples also are collected in a wet-only precipitation collector modified for continuous pH measurement. All samples are processed and shipped in the same manner. (USGS)
