Airborne contaminants, like organic particulate and gaseous pollutants, can be transported over long distances and interact with a broad range of vegetative surfaces. The question posed is whether sufficient data exist to understand and define those processes controlling atmospheric transport, canopy interception, foliar transport, and the subsequent fate of xenobiotics within the plant. The principal objective of the assessment was to review existing mathematical and/or computer simulation models that are used to estimate the following: aerial deposition of xenobiotics to plants; foliar/cuticular transport of organic xenobiotics; and stomatal transport of gases and volatile organic xenobiotics. Given that objective, the efforts were directed towards those models that were designed to address transport and fate of xenobiotics within a single leaf rather than at the crop canopy spatial scale. The second objective was to provide sufficient detail on those models to determine the potential for adapting or coupling those models to the existing UTAB (Uptake, Translocation, Accumulation, and Biodegradation) plant exposure model.
