Critical Loads - Monitoring Strategy - Additional Resources

Monitoring plans for measuring air pollution effects to sensitive resources have been developed in many regions and could be helpful in developing monitoring plans to improve CL and CL exceedance calculations.  Look for Air Quality Related Values (AQRV) Monitoring Plans for Class I areas in similar ecosystems or Air Quality Value Monitoring Plans developed for the Wilderness Challenge.  Both sets of monitoring plans provide guidance for identifying the most sensitive areas and stratifying monitoring efforts.  They also recommend incorporating the monitoring needs for air pollution effects into a broader interdisciplinary monitoring program when possible.
