Description U.S. Department of the Interior Geological Survey Grant/Contract No. B 236 Sorption processes for Hawaii soils which contain highly sorbed dibromochloropropane (DBCP) residues were analyzed to assess the leachability of the residues and their potential as a source for groundwater contamination. Leaching potential was inferred from measurements of equilibrium distribution coefficients and rates of desorption considered in the context of convective and diffusive transport by water moving in structured soils. Two methods that exploit the volatile nature of DBCP were...
