Abstract

Abstract Not Available – First paragraph follows: The distribution of organic chemicals in the soil profile after irrigation or rainfall is important because: (1) the effectiveness of a given pesticide applied to the soil is dependent in part upon its position in the soil profile; and (2) persistent organic chemicals can build up in the surface soil if they are strongly adsorbed, or can be leached into the groundwater if they are very mobile.
