The volume is a compendium of the papers and commentaries that were presented at the second of a series of four conferences on interpretation of environmental data conducted by the American Statistical Association and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The purpose of these conferences is to provide a forum in which professionals from the academic, private, and public sectors can exchange ideas on statistical problems that confront EPA in its charge to protect the public and the environment through regulation of toxic exposures. The theme of the conference, 'Statistical Issues in Combining Environmental Studies,' is particularly appropriate because policy formulation rarely depends upon a single study. At any rate, the conclusions from various studies are often seemingly contradictory or the evidence from any single study is not clear-cut. No matter how inconclusive the evidence may be, it is still necessary to formulate policies. The ASA/EPA research conference was held to make environmental statisticians and scientists aware of these new techniques and to examine the applicability of the methodology to environmental studies.
