In contrast to this rapid process, the transfer of molecules to the other S2 compartment (slow-desorption site) is a diffusion-limited process that is defined by mass transfer rate constants (kf, kr). Kd or KF S1 kf W S2 kr Gaston and Locke (2000) reported that the two-site equilibrium–kinetic model shown above describes the time-dependent adsorption of acifluorfen (70) well. O’Dell et al. 5) were reported for isoproturon (38) and terbuthylazine (78) in batch equilibrium studies, assuming the two-site model (Köhne et al.

2008; Kamra et al. 2001; Kruger et al. 1996; Matocha and Hossner 1999; Morgan et al. 1995; O’Dell et al. 1992; Riise et al. 1992, 1994; Singh et al. 2002; van Beinum et al. 2006), and it is generally enhanced by high irrigation intensity (Düring and Hummel 1999; Starrett et al. 1996). In large undisturbed clay columns that have many fractures, Jørgensen et al. (1998) demonstrated that the diffusion of two herbicides and Cl− from the fractures to the soil matrix was a key process and simulated their BTCs well.

In deeper soil layers and in GW, anaerobic biodegradation and/ or redox reactions with reduced species such as Fe2+ may also contribute to pesticide breakdown (Aharonson et al. 1987; Bewick 1994). Adsorption and degradation processes are affected by the variability of soil characteristics in the field and by extrinsic agricultural practices. By using the soils collected from 17 to 29 locations at two US sites, Rao et al. (1986) examined how the adsorption coefficient (Koc), normalized for the fraction of organic carbon content (foc), and the aerobic dissipation half-life (DT50) varied spatially for three pesticides.
