Reports on the development of predictive tools for estimating post-application flux derived from correlations of pesticide physicochemical properties and measured flux. Addresses modeling volatilization flux (residues on soil surface, soil-incorporated residues, pesticide residues on plants and water), downwind concentrations based on estimated flux (treated foliage and treated water), uncertainty in estimated flux, outliers, effect of wind speed and temperature on evaporative flux (soil and plants surfaces), and other flux estimation methods (Eureka Labs. and Knudsen Effusion).
