Attenuation Factor model results for Upper Floridan aquifer vulnerability to Bromacil and Ethylene Dibromide

Metadata Updated: November 2, 2018

This dataset includes Attenuation Factor (AF; Rao and others, 1985) model results for Upper Floridan aquifer vulnerability to Bromacil and 1,2-Dibromoethane or Ethylene Dibromide (EDB). The AF value serves as an index for assessing the transport of pesticide mass from the vadose zone. The AF model setup requires the input of raster soil bulk density, soil organic carbon content, soil field capacity, soil air filled porosity, recharge to the aquifer, depth to groundwater, the pesticide sorption coefficient, pesticide Henry's Law Constant, and pesticide half-life. These variables were entered into the AF equation using the raster calculator tool in ArcGIS. The resulting AF values are dimensionless and range between 0 and 1. A value of 1 indicates that all of the pesticides in the vadose zone will leach into the groundwater; conversely, a value of 0 suggests that no pesticides will leach into the groundwater.
