Details

Concentrations of selected herbicides and degradation products determined by laboratory method analysis code GCS for water samples collected from 51 streams in nine Midwestern States, 2002.

All concentrations are micrograms/liter, "<" means "less than". The data are in character format to allow for "<".

The original report contains data for more herbicides. This data is for illustrative purposes.

Sample types: CR = concurrent replicate sample, FB = field blank, LD = laboratory duplicate, S1 = sample from pre-emergence runoff, S2 = sample from post-emergence runoff, S3 = sample from harvest-season runoff.
