The objectives of the research was to develop and test an interdisciplinary approach to environmental problems using lead as an example, and to evaluate consequences of lead pollution from traffic exhaust and economic and technological effects of steps taken to reduce lead pollution from this source. Emphasis during the phase of the program covered in this report is upon pilot experiments to determine where, in what forms, and at what rate lead from traffic exhaust is accumulating in the environment. The topics covered include atmospheric transport, atmospheric chemistry, inadvertent weather modification, bioaccumulation, lead in soil and plants, economic aspects, and chemical analysis.
