Abstract: The main objectives for this study were as follows: i) Determine the kinetics of dissipation and bound residue formation of widely used pesticides in the Great Lakes area, as influenced by soil moisture, temperature and soil structure. ii) Test laboratory derived dissipation and bound residue formation data by comparing it to dissipation kinetics under field conditions. iii) Provide decay rates and hydrologic transport parameters for soils in the Great Lakes Basin as input for simulation models. Also, modify the pesticide fate and transport model, LEACHP, to provide improved measures of pesticide dissipation kinetics.
