Development, implementation and tentative validation of a prototype of the Haztimator system, a knowledgebased (expert) system (KBS) intended to provide design and time/cost estimates for hazardous waste remediation projects, is presented. The prototype evaluates one potential remedial alternative, soil vapor extraction followed by vapor-phase granular activated carbon for air emissions control.

The Environmental Guidebook is designed to serve as an essential "Who's Who"-type reference book profiling in standardized capsule form nearly 500 national organizations and other entities (including specific information resources) engaged in environmentally-related issues and activities in the U.S. and internationally. It is a broad-based, straightforward reference work (312 pages; 8.5 x 11 size), written to serve a wide potential audience, including: librarians/libraries; journalists; policymakers; practitioners (profiled/similar groups); and educators/students, as well as the general public - basically anyone with an interest in the environment and/or environmentally-related issues.

Key features/aspects of the Guidebook include:

1) Based on extensive independent research designed to "get below the surface," providing essential, relevant information without extraneous "fluff."

2) Selective in terms of listings, focusing on identified "key players" (i.e., a "Who's-Who) as well as key information sources.

3) Focuses on the activities, contributions and viewpoints of listed organization/entities, as well what each has to offer (e.g., tools/resources, publications, etc.) to interested parties.

4) Profiles much more than just environmentally-focused public interest groups, including governmental organizations (agencies, etc.), multilaterals (the UN, WTO, IMF, World Bank, etc.), political organizations/parties, business groups and labor unions, professional societies, job/career organizations, media-related entities (offering news, magazines, books, etc.), data/info-rich websites/ gateways, and "opposing views" groups (groups labeled as "anti-environmental" by critics/observers).

5) Adopts a relatively wide definition of "environmental" issues/activities, considering key associated issue areas such as agriculture, energy, public health, trade/commerce, and transportation/infrastructure, as well as more underlying factors such as consumerism, land use/planning, and population growth.

6) Identifies specific key reports and other publications judged to represent "essential reading" for interested parties.

7) Provides key contact information to obtain further information including through the Internet.

8) Includes summary indices that: a) list all profiled orgs/entities alphabetically by type (government, NGOs, etc.) and b) list all identified "key reports/publications" alphabetically by issue category (conservation, pollution, energy, etc.).

In addition, the Deluxe Edition of the Guidebook (ISBN 0-9720685-1-1) includes a Companion CD-ROM which contains:

1) A special PDF-based version of the Guidebook containing 3800 Internet "hotlinks" built directly into the text, thereby providing users with easy "one-click" access to further information via the Internet (in addition, full text searching of the Guidebook is possible using standard Adobe Acrobat Reader ® software) and

2) A collection of over 300 full-length documents (over 15,000 pages in all, with all provided in PDF format - again permitting full text searching capability using standard Acrobat Reader® software) that are referenced in the Guidebook, including:

- Identified "Key Reports/Publications": Specific reports and other publications judged to represent "essential reading" for interested parties, as summarily listed in Appendix B of the Guidebook.

- The latest budget and accountability documents (the latter consisting of annual performance plans and reports, long-term strategic plans, etc.) issued by federal governmental agencies (e.g., the Environmental Protection Agency, National Park Service, etc.).

-The latest annual reports for a number of environmental non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and multilaterals/related orgs (e.g., UNEP, IMF, World Bank, WTO, etc.).
