Abstract
To provide the scientific community with a set of standardized procedures for the collection and analysis of wet precipitation samples, an analytical methods manual for use in acid deposition studies has been developed. The manual includes detailed methods documentation for the major inorganic constituents of interest in wet deposition as well as guidelines for the collection, preservation, and processing of samples. The analytical methodologies include flame atomic absorption spectrophotometry, ion selective electrode, automated colorimetry, ion chromatography, and titrimetric procedures.
