Since its inception, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has maintained a research program in Alaska to address environmental problems unique to cold climates. The wide range of natural resource developments now being considered pose an equally wide range of possible environmental and related human health problems. In response to identified needs for planning, the EPA asked the Pacific Northwest Laboratory to establish a sound conceptual framework and work plan for a three to five year cold climate environmental research program. This planning process identified the 15 highest priority issues. The overall objective of the process was to provide the pertinent information an EPA contractor would need to start work immediately. Where the state of knowledge was so poorly developed that the specificity called for in the outline could not be provided, ways were suggested to address the uncertainty. Eighteen plans are presented in the report.
