A study of herbicides in Alberta rainfall was conducted at 17 locations in 1999 and 18 locations in 2000. Rainfall samples (bulk deposition) were collected using a funnel and glass bottle at weekly to biweekly intervals from April to September. Samples were analyzed for 13 herbicides in 1999 and 19 herbicides in 2000 using a MSD-GC method. Herbicides were detected in the rainfall on most sample dates at every location. The herbicides detected in the highest amounts (in order) were: 2,4-D, MCPA… Expand
