The chapter describes the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) monitoring project to assess the effects of changes in acidic deposition on surface waters of the United States. This project is referred to as TIME (Temporally Integrated Monitoring of Ecosystems). The TIME Project has been in the conceptual and design stage during the period 1987-1989. The planning period has allowed careful attention to many aspects of network design not usually covered prior to field implementation. The network design issues discussed in the paper are addressed within the context of the need for a policy-relevant, cost-effective national monitoring network to assess the effects of changes in atmospheric deposition of specific pollutants (sulfate and nitrate) on specific and well-defined target resources (U.S. surface waters of low acid-neutralizing capacity (ANC)).
