National Atmospheric Deposition Program 2015 Summary of Critial Load Maps Gay, David, 2015  Illinois State Water Survey, Champaign, IL,  ISWS MP-204    Full Text Available

In April 2010, the National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP) Executive Committee formed the Critical Loads of Atmospheric Deposition Science Committee (CLAD). This committee evolved from an ad hoc group originally formed in 2006.The purpose of CLAD is to discuss current and emerging issues regarding the science and use of critical loads for effects of atmospheric deposition on ecosystems in the United States. The goals of CLAD are to:

  • Facilitate technical information sharing on critical load topics within a broad multi-agency/entity audience;
  • Fill gaps in critical loads development in the US;
  • Provide consistency in development and use of critical loads in the US;
  • Promote understanding of critical load approaches through development of outreach and communications materials.
