Pesticides in Surface Waters presents a comprehensive summary of this research. This book evaluates published studies that focus on measuring pesticide concentration. The studies chosen include peer reviewed scientific literature, government reports, laboratory studies, and those using microcosms and artificial streams and ponds. Format: Hardcover. Surface waters are particularly vulnerable to contamination by pesticides, because most agricultural and urban areas drain into surface water systems. Once pesticides are in the moving surface water system, they can be transported downstream and widely dispersed into other rivers, lakes, reservoirs, and ultimately, the oceans.

  Chemical analysis of surface waters conducted in European countries and the US indicates that pesticides are often detected in surface waters and that aquatic organisms might be at risk [16–20]. This asks for consideration of these monitoring data while re-evaluating approved pesticides by regulatory authorities and setting appropriate risk Cited by: Get this from a library!

Pesticides are important for agriculture in the United States, and atrazine is one of the most widely used and widely detected pesticides in surface water. A better understanding of the mechanisms by which atrazine and its degradation product, deethylatrazine, increase and decrease in surface waters can help inform future decisions for water-. Indeed, some pesticides are still detectable in surface waters 20 years after their use had been banned (Larson et al., ). Nevertheless, the long-term environmental fate of pesticides has.
