Abstract : In an initial effort to assess environmental research in other countries, the author made selected visits to the United Kingdom, Federal Republic of Germany, the State of Israel, NATO, and the Commission of European Communities in Brussels, Belgium. Results of the author's visits are presented as specific environmental topics such as hydrocarbon bioremediation, groundwater treatment, ordnance demilitarization, marine antifouling control, pollution prevention, with reference to existing Navy requirements and research where relevant. The author points out that research and development has the potential for providing the leverage leading to processes that will achieve affordable cleanup of past, and prevent future environmental insult.
