Abstract/Contents:"Pesticide leaching models have evolved as research tools and more recently as important components of regulatory decision-making procedures. A procession of recent model review exercises has resulted in a high level of consensus on what makes a good model, and differences between the models have greatly decreased. The most commonly used regulatory models in the EU are PRZM, PELMO, PEARL, and MACRO, and the FOCUS group has recently developed a standard set of regulatory groundwater scenarios and corresponding input files for each of these models. A comparison of the state of the art with regulatory user requirements reveals that there has been a lot of emphasis on model accuracy in the past at the expense of practical needs like version control, input guidance, and user support - the FOCUS scenarios and associated support processes will greatly improve this situation. Global harmonisation of regulatory leaching models should be the next goal."
