What constitutes on adequate model for predicting the behavior of pesticides in the environment?
Two important questions motivating much of the research work in pesticide environmental behavior are: (1) What is the expected environmental concentration-time profile for a pesticide at specific locations in various media during the manufacture, application, and dissipation of the product? (2) What are the hazards to man and his environment resulting from these environmental concentrations?
