Data are unaggregated and reported in the same time intervals as collected at CASTNET sites. Measurement data types include weekly filter pack concentrations and hourly meteorological, ozone and trace gas measurements. Daily zero, span and precision checks are reported for the ozone and trace gas measurements.
Data are measured concentrations for each pollutant averaged over weekly, seasonal, or annual time periods. In addition, users can download ozone 8-hour daily maximum or W126 values.
Data include total deposition estimates calculated by a measurement/model hybrid method (for more details on the methodology see Schwede and Lear, 2014). Annual total deposition fluxes are calculated as the sum of wet and dry deposition using measured data (from NADP/NTN, NADP/AIRMoN, and CASTNET) and modeled results (from CMAQ and PRISM). Historical dry deposition velocities and fluxes as calculated by the Multi-Layer Model (MLM) are also provided, but these results are no longer updated (as of 2017).
Data include site details and parameters used as input to the Multi-Layer Model (MLM). The MLM is used to estimate deposition rates at by parameter for each CASTNET site.
These prepackaged datasets contain the same data as the previous four report types, but as raw csv data files for intensive data analysis.
Data are modeled using the CLOUD cloud deposition model during warm weather sampling seasons. Additional information about the cloud deposition monitoring program can be found under the Documents and Reports tab.
