Abstract:
This dataset includes daily sampling of air and precipitation for acidifying air pollutants, ozone and major ions. Variables: Precipitation amount and chemical composition; Air - chemical composition. Note: data from all stations not available for the complete time period; data from this database will also be incorporated into the other databases mentioned in the Reference.This dataset is currently applied to establish spatial and temporal variation, long- term trends, verification of long-range transport models/processes and the standardization of other networks. Spatial Data Organization Information - Indirect Spatial Reference: Direct Spatial Reference: Raster Object Type: Row Count: Column Count: Vertical Count: Spatial Reference Information - Horizontal Coordinate System Definition - Planar - Planar Coordinate Encoding Method: Coordinate Representation: Abscissa Resolution: Ordinate Resolution: Distance and Bearing Representation: Distance Resolution: Bearing Resolution: Bearing Units: Bearing Reference Direction: Bearing Reference Meridian: Planar Distance Units: Geodetic Model: Horizontal Datum Name: Ellipsoid Name: Semi-major Axis: Denominator of Flattening Ratio:

Access_Instructions:
The Canadian Air and Precipitation Monitoring Network is a non-urban air quality monitoring network with siting criteria designed to ensure that the measurement locations are regionally representative (not affected by local sources of air pollution). Scientists involved with the measurement of atmospheric pollution in urban centres would consider most CAPMoN sites to be remote and pristine. There are currently 28 measurement sites in Canada and 1 in the U.S.A.
