2024-05 Great Lakes Restoration Initiative 2024 Request for Applications – Integrated Atmospheric Deposition Network

Due: May 6, 2024

The Integrated Atmospheric Deposition Network (IADN) was established in 1990 as a binational monitoring network between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), in response to scientific evidence that demonstrated that input from the atmosphere is a significant source of many persistent toxic chemicals to the Great Lakes. Since 1990, IADN has monitored persistent toxic chemicals in vapor, particulates, and precipitation at both urban and rural sites across the Great Lakes basin. Applicants must propose program activities that support the following general goals of the program: Annually monitor atmospheric deposition of persistent toxic chemicals to the Great Lakes, Assess atmospheric loadings and trends of persistent toxic chemicals to the Great Lakes, Identification of new or emerging chemical threats to the Great Lakes, or Reporting of results to support Great Lakes ecosystem assessments.
