The report is a general reference manual on the terminology used to enter and retrieve information from the Environmental Assessment Data Systems (EADS), a group of interrelated computerized data bases that describe multimedia discharges from energy systems and industrial processes. The EADS was designed to aid researchers in environmental assessment, source characterization, and control technology development. The report contains the standard nomenclature or terminology used to describe certain data categories in the waste stream data bases. To selectively retrieve data from the waste stream data bases, consistent terminology must be used if the computer search is to obtain an exact match. The report contains terminology to be used to categorize sources, describe control technology, identify chemical compounds and elements, describe analytical methods in sample analysis, and list other data. The terminology applies to particle, gas, liquid, and solid discharge effluent streams.
