FORT scientist Jill Baron was the keynote speaker at the opening plenary session of the National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP) annual meeting, held Oct. 25-28, 2011, in Providence, RI. She spoke on nitrogen loading and climate change effects on U.S. water resources. The meeting brings together scientists, policymakers, resource managers, and students interested in climate change, air quality, atmospheric deposition and its effects on natural and cultural resources. The NADP National Trends Network, begun in 1978, is network of 250 sites that provides data on the amounts, trends, and geographic distributions of acids, nutrients, and base cations in precipitation across the United States. Dr. Baron and her team have operated an NADP site in the Loch Vale Watershed of Rocky Mountain National Park since 1983.
