Enviresearch's James Garratt and Sabine Beulke have collaborated with Thomas Dowling, of King’s College London to publish a new paper. The paper discusses the spatial assessment of pesticide leaching risk to groundwater: sub‐national decision making and model output aggregation.
'This is the data age. We started this work because we felt that the way we assess pesticide risk to ground water was not keeping pace with our understanding of the world. The normal way to assess a risk is to provide a few predictions of pesticide concentrations in a few sites. If any of them are too high then the pesticide is considered ‘unsafe’ and the authorities may reject it for a whole country. We were trying to find a way to for authorities to say ‘You can’t use it everywhere, but it will be safe enough in some places.’
