The U.S. National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP) is a confederation of scientists, universities, and government agencies formed with the common interest of measuring acid rain in the United States. In order to insure that the data developed under this program are reliable, a quality assurance program was developed. This report reviews the major aspects of the NADP Quality Assurance Plan, including field operations, laboratory activities, and data handling.
