Abstract

Citations from the scientific literature for studies that quantified selected pesticides in field runoff or streams were obtained from two computerized bibliographic databases: Chemical Abstracts and AGRICOLA. Selected data were extracted from studies in field environments that lasted longer than a day and are summarized here. The data extracted from each article, if available, include pesticide information, environmental setting, year of study, and the mass of the pesticide in runoff as a percent of the mass applied. Data from two national studies of pesticides in surface waters done by the U.S. Geological Survey (National Water-Quality Assessment Program, 1992?1995, and National Stream-Quality Accounting Network, 1996-1998) also are summarized.
