    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract The TOXSWA model will be used to estimate exposure concentrations for aquatic organisms in the Dutch pesticide registration procedure. Applying a model in the registration procedure requires standard scenarios. A gross number of 24 scenarios were defined, based on worst case values of three sensitive system parameters (water depth, flow velocity, and macrophyte mass). In concurrency with developments at EU level on standard `waterbodies' we here propose scenarios representing ditches with a water depth of 0.30 m, without macrophytes, and a flow velocity of 10 m d-1 for spring and summer and 100 m d-1 for autumn. For these standard scenarios graphs have been constructed in which the momentary exposure concentration is given as a function of the coefficient describing sorption to sediment and suspended solids, based on the organic matter content. Other graphs give the average exposure concentrations as a function of the dissipation half-life (comprising transformation in water and volatilization).
