ACCUMULATIVE SUMMARY OF OUTPUTS



COPYRIGHT NOTE: Most of the publications and accepted manuscripts listed immediately below appear in scientific journals which require authors to assign copyright to the journals’ publisher. In all such cases, the publications have been submitted to EPA in printed form, because they can not legally be submitted electronically. The links appearing after such citations provide access to information about the respective publications. If they are accessed through internet paths which have suitable access rights the whole publication will be available electronically.


            Most citations referencing uncopyrighted material have links to files on the CD ROM disk on which this access file is located. Although a substantial effort has been made to locate presentation files, many of the presenters left the program some time ago, and their files have not always been found. In one case of active, but as yet unpublished, research the student and advisor deemed it inappropriate to circulate the research plan prior to completion of the research and its subsequent publication.
