Terrorism and the Chemical Infrastructure:
Protecting People and Reducing Vulnerabilities

This new study from The National Academies addresses how to characterize and mitigate the vulnerabilities faced by the nation from its chemical infrastructure. It examines the most significant, general types of vulnerabilities, not site-specific. It also suggests the best ways to minimize the possibility or consequences of a terrorist attack on the nation’s chemical infrastructure and what research the U.S. Department of Homeland Security should pursue.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on May 25, 2006 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
