    Discusses approaches for determining the impact of pollution on aquatic ecosystems through toxicological and chemical fate assessments. Five sections cover: methods development, refinement, and evaluation; chemicals and chemical wastes; impact of wastes on aquatic ecosystems; bioavailability; and national water quality criteria.
