Environmental Quality Research and Development. A Review and Analysis of Federal Programs.
Executive Office of the President, Washington, DC.; Federal Council for Science and Technology, Washington, DC.
This is the first interagency report on Federal environmental quality research and development programs that presents program descriptions, levels of funding, and analyses. Undertaken at the request of the Federal Council for Science and Technology, the study may be useful in identifying environmental quality research and development programs in various agencies and allow for better coordination between widely separate disciplines. Program activities were considered in nine areas: air quality; water quality; land quality (including solid waste); understanding, describing, and predicting the environment; protecting and enhancing the environment; alternatives to the use of pesticides; noise; radiation; and population. Funding levels are determined in each of the subject areas for fiscal years 1969, 1970, and 1971. Analysis of the Federal program was performed in terms of its balance, trends, priorities, gaps and overlaps, and future needs. A short summary, an analysis, and a table of funding by agencies for each of the subject sections are included in the main report. Full reports of the subject matter investigations are presented in the appendix. An overall summary of the analyses and specific recommendations relating to all reported Federal environmental quality research and development is also compiled. (BL)
