Fate of Pesticides in Surface Waters, Laboraty and Field Experiments


This report presents the results of laboratory and field experiments concerning the fate of pesticides in surface water performed in connection to the construction of a model-based tool for evaluation of the fate of pesticides in surface water. The report contains the results of sorption and degradation experiments performed with a number of pesticides and sediments under different conditions. The sorption and degradation model from the tool has been fitted to the experimental results and the estimated model parameters, which can be used for evaluation of the tool, are presented in the report. Furthermore, the report presents the results of field experiments, in which the fate of different pesticides sprayed onto artificial ponds, with and without plants, was followed.
