Date Issued:
1973-03
Summary:
This report gives the results of a survey of pesticides in soils, canal sediments and estuarine sediments in the Everglades watershed. The extremely low solubility of the persistent organochlorine pesticides and their tendency to adsorb on particulate matter suggests that the most likely mode of transport of pesticides from agricultural areas to the estuaries will be in association with sediments.
