The purpose of the study was to determine atmospheric loadings of selected trace elements and organic compounds directly to the surface waters of the Chesapeake Bay. The work in this report represents the first eighteen months of the Chesapeake Bay Atmospheric Deposition Study. Future reports will describe the integrate results from the CBADS network through September 1993. An 18 month field study (6/90 - 12/91), conducted to estimate the deposition of atmospheric trace contaminants to the Chesapeake Bay, represents Phase II of the Chesapeake Bay Atmospheric Deposition Study (CBADS). Previously reported data from Phase I (6/90 - 7/91) is presented here in concert with data from 7/91 - 12/91. The trace elements (aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, copper, iron, manganese, nickel, lead, selenium, and zinc), polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) congeners, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were measured in the ambient atmosphere and in precipitation. In addition several major ions, (chloride, sulfate, nitrate, sodium) were measured in precipitation at the three sites.
