The report contains atmospheric measurements data at high elevation sites in the eastern United States. Measurements made in 1987 from May to October are included for O3, SO2, NO2, cloud water content, cloud chemistry, H2O2. Historical data from other sites are included for comparison purposes as well as data on climatic variables. Sites at Mt. Mitchell, NC, Shenandoah, VA, Whitetop, VA, Whiteface Mt., NY, Mt. Moositauke, NH, and Howland, Maine form the Mountain Cloud Chemistry Project (MCCP). The primary objective of the MCCP is to characterize the exposure of montane forested ecosystems to atmospheric inputs. The high elevation forests of the eastern United States are of particular interest because of reported declines in the populations of red spruce and balsam fir trees at selected locations throughout the Appalachian Mountains.
