    With the increasing awareness of the effects on the environment of air pollution, the measurement of the various contributing processes has grown in importance. This paper looks at the monitoring of one of these processes, that of wet deposition caused by precipitation. In the design of a monitoring network measuring the quality of precipitation, there are five general factors to be considered for data quality, namely, network objectives, network design, operations, chemical and data analyses, data products, and quality assurance. A continuous evaluation of all aspects of the network must be undertaken to ensure the quality of the data. The Canadian Network for Sampling Precipitation is used as an example.
