EPA Research 2015 Yearbook

For more than 45 years, EPA researchers have provided the strong, scientific foundation that supports everything EPA does to meet its mission to protect human health and the environment. In 2015 alone, EPA researchers published 556 articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals, worked on projects ranging from understanding wildfire smoke emissions to helping protect small drinking water systems, and applied their expertise to emerging issues in times of environmental emergencies. While a single report outlining the work and achievements of just a single year would fill many volumes, this 2015 Yearbook highlights just a small sample of the critical impact of that work.
