The Pesticide Assessment Tool for Rating Investigations of Transport (PATRIOT) is a methodology for providing rapid analyses of groundwater vulnerability to pesticides on a regional, state, or local level. The PATRIOT software package integrates, in a personal computer environment, a tool that enables scientifically sound analysis of pesticide leaching potential with the data needed to use the tool for area-specific analyses anywhere in the conterminous United States. PATRIOT is comprised of (1) a chemical fate and transport model (PRZM-2), (2) a comprehensive database, (3) an interface that allows the user to explore the database and select the data appropritate to characterize local environmental factors and pesticide application scenarios, (4) a directed sequence of interaction that guides the user in providing all the necessary information to perform alternative model analyses, and (5) effective, user-selected methods of summarizing and visualizing model results.
