Scenarios and Model Describing Fate and Transport of Pesticides in Surface Water for Danish Conditions


The report presents different scenarios for assessment of the occurrence of pesticides in surface water, for moraine clay and sandy soils in Denmark. The processes investigated and the background for the selection of areas are described, and a review is given of the parameterisation of process descriptions. Examples are shown of the mass balances for water and substances. Model systems deviate from the FOCUS surface water scenarios in that they are calculated in a coupled model system, by simulating a larger number of years, and by including a fully defined catchment area.
