Citation: Hall DH. 1970. Use of agricultural chemicals and factors contributing to their transport to estuaries in Hawaii. Honolulu (HI): Water Resources Research Center, University of Hawaii at Manoa. WRRC technical memorandum report, 30.
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to determine for watersheds contributing to specified important estuaries in the State of Hawaii, the types and quantities of "agricultural chemicals” (pesticides and fertilizers) applied, the timing of such applications, and the acreages involved. These cultural practices, are then to be related to terrain features and rainfall characteristics with the objective of assessing the likelihood of chemical contaminants being transported from the site of application to estuarian waters by surface runoff and/or erosion.
