Pesticide Runoff Model (PeRM): A Case Study for the Kintore Creek Watershed, Ontario, Canada
Additional Document Info
An integrated model, the Pesticide Runoff Model (PeRM), has been developed to predict pesticide losses due to runoff by considering the emission, degradation, adsorption and desorption of pesticides, as well as their movement in dissolved and adsorbed phases. The developed modeling system has been used to calculate the losses of atrazine from agricultural lands in the Kintore Creek Watershed, Ontario, Canada between 1988 and 1992. The modeling outputs have been verified against actual monitoring data, which were obtained from a water quality monitoring project carried out in the same watershed over the same period of time.
