This report is the second of a series of annual reports to Congress presenting a five-year projection of environmental research activities to be conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The general role of environmental research is discussed in the context of the Agency's regulatory and assistance functions and the National goal of protecting and enhancing the environment. Anticipated research over the next five years is discussed for each of the fourteen subprograms, as well as for six 'current interest modules' which cut across several of the subprograms. The dominant programs in the forecast period are health effects studies and energy-related comprehensive environmental research. Impacts of level and increasing budgets on scheduling of program outputs are discussed.
