The report covers a period from April 16, 1979 - May 3, 1979. The project described had the following objectives; to evaluate the adequacy of current environmental research in relation to future anticipated regulatory decisions and budgetary planning; and to establish priorities for funding environmental research and development appropriate to public health initiatives. At a series of meetings, invited scientists addressed specific environmental and public health issues; Management - Conservation; Measurement and Analysis; Source Characterization and Control; Human Exposure, Effects, and Monitoring; and Environmental Processes, Effects, and Monitoring. Six member working committees presented officials in the EPA Office of Research and Development with information utilized in preparing the Fiscal Year 1981 budget. A second meeting was then convened to discuss and develop responses to questions raised by EPA officials. This document includes the reports of the 20 committees which met for the first series of meetings, the questions raised by EPA officials, and the reports of the follow-up meeting, prepared in response to the questions.
