The 5th Environmental Research and Development Programme (STEP: Science and Technology for Environmental Protection), was implemented during the period 1989-1992 and covered a number of different areas including tropospheric processes and air quality. Within these research areas projects dealt with analysis, sources, transport, transformation and deposition of species arising from anthropogenic and natural emissions. The general objectives of the programme were to improve knowledge of regional air pollution issues, mainly related to atmospheric acidity (acid deposition) and photochemical oxidant formation. It was intended that the results of the programme would provide a scientific and technical basis for implementation of the Community's environmental policy and promote long term research to support a preventive approach to environmental protection. This report outlines the context, aims and achievements of each project, and is receded by a summary of the major achievements of the programme. The report also contains a number of selected refereed publications from the programme. A list of EC publications containing contributions from the programme is also given. The EC publications cited are the EC Air Pollution Research Reports and the Proceedings of the Sixth European Symposium of Physico-Chemical Behaviour of Atmospheric Pollutants held in Varese (IT) in 1993.
