In the concluding consultation of the symposium "Acid Deposition, a problem for Europe" held in Karlsruhe in September 1983, Dr. GINJAAR, the previous Minister of wellbeing and fitness and Environmental security of the Netherlands, emphasized the necessity for establishing a concerted examine programme together with the results of pollution on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. The Council of Ministers of the eu group in 1984 followed a revision of the third neighborhood Programme on atmosphere comprising agreement study and concerted motion within the box of the results of pollution in eco­ platforms. those study components have been additionally brought within the 4th R-D group Programme on surroundings, followed via the Council of Ministers in 1986 and are topic back to agreement learn and concerted motion. The fee of the ecu group is especially involved to extend the effectiveness of researcn initiatives performed in the nationwide programmes, and people undertaken on the group point. The fee has a tendency to boost an built-in clinical strategy, together with not just the physico-chemical behaviour, the delivery and the deposition of airborne pollution but in addition the results of those pollution, specifically on dwelling organisms and ecosystems. in regards to the categorical factor of the results, the fee is making an attempt to strengthen and develop a multi-disciplinary technique associating biologists, pathologists, eco­ physiologists, and experts of soil sciences, in the concerted motion, in addition to inside of coordinated learn projects.

This booklet covers all points of bioavailability, as concerning environmental contaminants. After a dialogue of the definition of bioavailability and its context, concentration is put on the function of threat review and bioavailability. tools of study are then mentioned together with a number of atomic spectroscopic and electrochemical concepts for steel research and chromatographic ways for power natural pollution (POPs).

Je Ie dirai egalement ames collegues dans trois jours chaque etat doit faire un geste de conciliation. Pourvuque chacun fasse un effort et que les mesures prises aient une reel Ie efficacite, la France, pour sa part, pourra accepter une decision allant moins loin que ce qu'elle esperait il y a quelques annees. J'ai beaucoup parle de l'Europe, et c'est normal. Mais notre pays -0- mene aussi une action nationale qu'il convient de souligner. Dans notre programme de lutte c~ntre les pluies acides, nous nous sommes fixes deux priorites : les oxydes de soufre et les hydrocarbures.

II rassemble une centaine de laboratoires europe ens mobilises pour mieux connaitre Ie processus d'acidification A l'echelle du continent. Ce symposium de Grenoble est un nouveau pas en avant vers une Europe scientifique de l'environnement en marc he : notre pays y contribue activement. -M- EXPOSE de Monsieur Christian BARTHOD Direction de l'Espace Rural et de la Foret du Ministere de l'Agriculture Messieurs les Ministres, Monsieur Ie President, Monsieur It Prefet, Messieurs les Directeurs, Mesdames, Messieurs, Je vous demande de bien vouloir excuser Monsieur Fran90is GUILLAUME, Ministre de 1 'Agriculture , charge de la politique forestiere, retenu par d'autres obligations.

During the past century, major increases in combustion of coal, oil, and other fossil fuels and production and use of volatile organic compounds have taken place in North America and Europe. As a result, equally major changes have taken place in emissions of sulfur and nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds (VOC). Since 1880, emissions of sulfur and nitrogen oxides have increased approximately 10 fold (Husar, 1986; Gschwandtner et aI, 1986). Reliable data on changes in emissions of VOC are not available but are estimated by informed scientists to be of about the same order of magnitude (Altshuller, personal communication).
