Graduate Student Lilly Naimie Receives NAPD Presentation Award
Lilly Naimie won the Best PhD Student Oral Presentation Award at last week’s National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP) Scientific Symposium held in Madison, Wisconsin, October 25-26. Lilly’s presentation was entitled “Contributions of Ammonia Dry Deposition to Excess Nitrogen Deposition in Rocky Mountain National Park.” Lilly is advised by Jeff Collett.
Started in 1977, NADP was created to measure atmospheric deposition and study its effects on the environment. Today, the program is a “a cooperative effort between many different groups, including federal, state, tribal and local governmental agencies, educational institutions, private companies, and non-governmental agencies.” It is housed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and now has about 356 different site locations with more than 37,000 users.
