This Symposium was conducted under a US/USSR Environmental Agreement, Project 02.06-21 titled 'Effect of Pollutants on Marine Organisms. Papers by American and Soviet specialists present advances in hydrobiological analysis of basic structural components of marine ecosystems and the influence of various pollutants on these components. Results of laboratory research as well as field observations on the influence of pollution on the marine environment are presented. Participants attending the Symposium discussed problems related to methods for modeling the influence of pollutants on the marine environment, long term forecasting and determination of permissible loads of pollutants, and the unification and intercalibration of methods for determinig biological responses and chemical contamination. Extensive discussions were held on the scope of the technical topics to be included in the exchange. The authors recognized that EPA's interests were primarily related to the scientific basis for regulating waste discharges, whereas the Soviet scientists tended to be less involved in this activity and more interested in global or at least large scale marine water quality for its own sake. The United States co-chairman proposed to invite greater participation from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in future project activities to balance the interest of the Soviet scientists. Proceedings are published in English and Russian in compliance with the Memorandum from the 4th Session of the Joint US-USSR Committee on Cooperation in the Field of Environmental Research.
