The Forest Response Program (FRP) is a major research undertaking. The involvement of the Forest Service, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the broader scientific community gives the program a unique blend of perspectives and talents that is imperative to achieve the program's goal. A central challenge is to integrate results from fundamentally different kinds of research. Although the FRP will no longer exist in its present form after 1990, both the Forest Service and the Environmental Protection Agency are intent on continuing active acid rain research programs and expanding into important new areas. Two emerging issues are the effects of global climate change and of increased ultraviolet radiation resulting from stratospheric ozone depletion.
