Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 187)

Abstract

The major factors degrading the environment for ground based astronomy are reviewed and an outline is given of the efforts now being made to combat them. While the outlook is very grim for the continuance of observations, at any wavelength, of the faintest cosmic sources, there is evidence that cause for guarded optimism still remains.
