Vegetative filter strips (VFS) are an environmental management tool used to reduce sediment and pesticide transport from surface runoff. Numerical models of VFS such as the Vegetative Filter Strip Modeling System (VFSMOD-W) are capable of predicting runoff, sediment, and pesticide reduction and can be useful tools to understand the effectiveness of VFS and environmental conditions under which they may be ineffective. However, as part of the modeling process, it is critical to identify input… Expand
Influence of flow concentration on parameter importance and prediction uncertainty of pesticide trapping by vegetative filter strips
Flow concentration is a key hydrologic factor limiting the effectiveness of vegetated filter strips (VFS) in removing pesticides from surface runoff. Numerical models, such as VFSMOD-W, offer aExpand
Modeling effectiveness of agricultural BMPs to reduce sediment load and organophosphate pesticides in surface runoff.
TLDR
This study has suggested that the SWAT model reasonably predicts BMP effectiveness at the watershed scale, which will assist decision making in implementing BMPs to reduce pesticide loads in surface runoff. Expand
Does mechanistic modeling of filter strip pesticide mass balance and degradation processes affect environmental exposure assessments?
TLDR
The updated framework with degradation predicted higher EECs than the existing framework without degradation for scenarios with greater sediment transport, longer VFS lengths, and highly sorbing and persistent pesticides. Expand
Dynamics of runoff and sediment trapping performance of vegetative filter strips: Run-on experiments and modeling.
TLDR
Both soil physical properties and vegetation characteristics should be considered for the species-specific, temporally variable performance of VFS; and when using VFSMOD inform the VFS design, modelers should take the dynamics of vegetation, mainly through vertical saturated hydraulic conductivity, stem spacing and strip Manning's roughness into account, and select parameters that reflect the actual field conditions. Expand
Metamodeling methods that incorporate qualitative variables for improved design of vegetative filter strips
TLDR
A metamodeling, or model dimension reduction, approach is proposed to ease the use of BUVARD and to help users design VFSs that are adapted to specific contexts, and it is shown that kriging, implemented with a covariance kernel for a mixture of qualitative and quantitative inputs, outperforms the other meetingamodels.

Recalibration and cross-validation of pesticide trapping equations for vegetative filter strips (VFS) using additional experimental data.
TLDR
The study confirmed the suitability of the Sabbagh equation for regulatory modelling of pesticide trapping in VFS and confirmed the regression-free mass balance approach turned out to be a viable alternative. Expand
Revised framework for pesticide aquatic environmental exposure assessment that accounts for vegetative filter strips.
TLDR
This research hypothesizes that mechanistic modeling of VFS runoff and sediment trapping, integrated with an empirical, regression-based pesticide trapping equation and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) exposure framework, is able to effectively derive VFS physiographic characteristics and emphasizes the need to incorporate physically based modeled VFS reductions for pesticides that do not pass the current U.s. EPA exposure assessment framework. Expand

Abstract. Vegetative filter strips are often used for protecting surface waters from pollution transferred by surface runoff in agricultural watersheds. In Europe, they are often prescribed along theExpand
Effect of vegetative filter strip pesticide residue degradation assumptions for environmental exposure assessments.
TLDR
The VFS modeling framework was updated to consider four degradation assumptions and determine if VFS residues and/or EECs differed with each assumption, and indicated that, while important differences exist between EU or US EEAs, the choice of pesticide degradation assumption is not a main source of these differences.

TLDR
Simulation results support field observations that a 10-m or longer filter strip can retain most of the medium and large particles transported in runoff, and indicate infiltration loss is largely responsible for the retention of small-size sediment particles. Expand
