    Abstract This book was inspired by a wish to summarize and reflect upon the research activities I have been involved in over the years at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA). The two projects drawn from for this book, Sources of Chemical Pollution in the Rhine River Basin (the Rhine Basin Study) and Regional Material Balance Approaches to Long-Term Environmental Policy Planning (the IND Project), were ambitious, innovative, cross-disciplinary research efforts that tried to address questions concern- ing the large-scale, long-term environmental development of Europe. The aim here is to provide an overview of these two studies, which focused on two of the traditionally most polluted regions in Europe: the Rhine River Basin and the Black Triangle–Upper Silesia (BTUS) region. Results from these projects have been presented in many reports and articles in different contexts. The intention here is to complement earlier presentations with a longer, more comprehensive summary of the perspectives and results of the projects, with particular emphasis on what can be learned from these re- search efforts in the context of historical and future regional environmental development.
