Great Lakes Integrated Atmospheric Deposition Network - Master Stations

IADN and Canada’s Air Monitoring in the Great Lakes Basin program form a joint binational monitoring network that has been in operation since 1990. There are five master monitoring stations, one near each of the Great Lakes.

  • Eagle Harbor on Lake Superior;
  • Brule River on Lake Superior;
  • Sleeping Bear Dunes on Lake Michigan;
  • Sturgeon Point on Lake Erie; and
  • Point Petre on Lake Ontario.

To understand better the contribution of urban sources to lake wide loadings, IADN also has two satellite stations located in Chicago and Cleveland.
