The report summarizes the 1986 wet deposition precipitation chemistry data collected in North America and available in the Acid Deposition System (ADS) data base. Interpretative analyses are not a focus of the report; however, users of the report will learn about major wet deposition monitoring networks in North America, the extent of their geographic coverage, and general characteristics of wet deposition for 1986. An overview of each network is given. Annual and seasonal statistical summaries for 1986 are provided for pH, hydrogen ion (derived from pH), and the ion species sulfate, nitrate, ammonium, calcium, chloride, sodium, magnesium and potassium.
