The chemical properties and the extensive historic utilization of a number of residue-forming xenobiotic substances of anthropogenic origin have led to the ubiquitous distribution of these materials throughout the global environment. The contention is supported by a substantial body of literature which has documented the presence of anthropogenic contaminants in areas presumably remote from the direct industrial and/or cultural influences attributable to humans. The purpose of the chapter is to examine the existing scientific literature related to atmospherically transported contaminants and summarize present knowledge about the types and kinds of chemical contaminants of concern, the pathways and processes involved in exposure, and the multiplicity of effects associated with these substances. Then, having examined the present base of information, efforts will be made to identify knowledge gaps and information deficits. From this basis, future information needs can be identified.
