The results described in the report represent but a few of the projects supported by the Office of Research and Development in 1977. The program ranges from direct support to EPA's regulatory functions, such as cancer assessment and drinking water purification, to investigations of long-term phenomena, such as the ozone layer analyses. It ranges from technologies to clean up car exhausts to technologies to clean up power plant fumes, and from studies of how cells react to carcinogens to studies of how people react to energy development activities. In the report, there are studies on cars, cancer, energy, water, pesticides, coke ovens, ozone, cheese and waste. This is just a sampling of the projects underway, selected for reviews because they represent breakthroughs in research, fill a practical technological void, are inherently interesting, or have implications for the future.
