Survey of Rocky Mountain Snow Chemistry
PRIMENet was a joint Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and National Park Service (NPS) program to assess the effects of environmental stressors on ecological systems nationwide. A system of 14 monitoring and research sites was established in National Parks as a part of this program. This network of monitoring and research locations used the park units as "outdoor laboratories," where environmental changes were monitored through time in relatively undisturbed sites. PRIMENet parks include: Acadia, Big Bend, Canyonlands, Denali, Everglades, Great Smoky Mountains, Glacier, Hawaii Volcanoes, Olympic, Rocky Mountain, Shenandoah, Sequoia/Kings Canyon, Theodore Roosevelt, and Virgin Islands National Parks.
