A targeted approach can be used, in which one or more empirical indices depict the relative health-related concerns associated with pollutant emissions (e.g., stress related to physical, chemical, biological, and/or radiological emissions), environmental transport and their pathways, environmental media contamination potential, and/or potential remediation measures and their effectiveness in reducing existing contamination.

Information on other targeted approaches is also available. These results of targeted approaches could then be integrated into the appropriate activities associated with the EIA study.
