Project objectives:
To develop techniques for the determination of low concentrations of pesticicdes and their transformation products in the subsurface aquatic environment 
Project Summary:
The research included developing and validating practical analytical methods for the determination of low concentrations of priority pesticides and metabolites; 
the identification and specification of the optimum sampling and monitoring methodologies for pesticides in the subsurface environment; demonstration
and application of developed methodologies in specific areas of the EU which demonstrate a variety of hydrogeologies, agricultural practices and pollution
