Abstract In anticipation of future environmental science and engineering challenges and technologic advances, EPA asked the National Research Council (NRC) to assess the overall capabilities of the agency to develop, obtain, and use the best available scientific and technologic information and tools to meet persistent, emerging, and future mission challenges and opportunities. The NRC was also asked to identify and assess transitional options to strengthen the agencys capability to pursue and use scientific information and tools. In response, the NRC convened the Committee on Science for EPAs Future, which prepared the present report.
