PATRIOT model / documentation

Pesticide Assessment Tool for Rating Investigations of Transport (PATRIOT) provides rapid analyses of ground water vulnerability to pesticides on a regional, state, or local level. PATRIOT assesses ground water vulnerability by quantifying pesticide leaching potential in terms of pesticide mass transported to the water table. It integrates a tool that enables analysis of pesticide leaching potential with data required for area-specific analysis anywhere in the U.S.

    PATRIOT is composed of:
  1. pesticide fate and transport model (PRZM2),
  2. comprehensive database,
  3. interface that facilitates database exploration,
  4. directed sequence of interaction that guides user in providing necessary information to perform alternative model analyses, and
  5. user-selected methods of summarizing and visualizing results.

Users are expected to be State personnel charged with developing pesticide management plans as well as other regulatory and resource management institutions.
