Natural attenuation of pesticides in prairie pothole wetlands

Overview

Prairie pothole wetlands are sensitive, biologically diverse, and globally productive ecosystems. However, many of these wetlands drain surrounding agricultural fields and accumulate snowmelt and summer rainfall, making them susceptible to pesticide contamination. We seek to understand to what extent photolysis and reduction reactions contribute to the natural attenuation of pesticides in the surface water and sediment of prairie pothole wetlands. More information can be found in our previous publications.
