The report summarizes the quality assurance activities of the NADP/NTN network from mid-1987 through mid-1988. The report presents some accomplishments and makes recommendations for the network. The report discusses data quality issues relating to site representativeness, field versus laboratory measurements of pH, site operator turnover rates and various monitoring network reviews. The report also contains the previously released 'NADP/NTN Instruction Manual for Site Operation' and the 'Quality Assurance Report of NADP/NTN Deposition Monitoring for Laboratory Operations' as well as an NADP/NTN quality assurance bibliography.
