This report describes the present and developing capabilities of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Environmental Monitoring and Support Laboratory in Las Vegas, Nevada. Its purpose is to present comprehensive information in concise form to enable users of the Laboratory's services to more readily determine the types of technical support available. The Laboratory's present capabilities were developed through performance of research and monitoring projects involving large and small animal studies; studies of vegetation and soil; development and application of techniques for monitoring of air, water, and land; analytical studies, and quality assurance activities. The data show a 5-fold increase in budget from 1971 to 1976. Whereas 77 percent of its resources were spent in radiation projects in Fiscal Year 1971, only 31 percent of its Fiscal Year 1976 funds were devoted to radiation studies. Indexed tables list the present capabilities by environmental medium and by pollutant. These are referenced to scientific and technical reports published or presented by Laboratory personnel.
