National Acid Precipitation Assessment Program

Project Description
The National Acid Precipitation Assessment Program (NAPAP) is an
interagency scientific research, monitoring and assessment
program on the effects of sulfur and nitrogen oxides on the
environment and human health. NAPAP acts as a coordinating
office between six Federal agencies, which also fosters
cooperation among its members, other governments, States,
universities, and the private sector. The participating agencies
are the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA),
the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Department of
Energy (DOE), the Department of the Interior (DOI), the
Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the National Aeronautics
and Space Administration (NASA). NAPAP is a mature program that,
through coordination, capitalizes on the different strengths of
the participating agencies.
