Included are controlled free language terms which may be useful in searching the NTIS data base. The terms are listed hierarchically with main entries followed by narrower terms, broader terms, related terms, and scope notes. The parent thesaurus source of each term is identified. The micro-thesaurus is divided into two sections. The first section contains more than 1800 terms that express environmental concepts relating to water, air, noise, and radiation pollution, disposal of solid waste, and environmental health.
