    Abstract

    The migration and degradation of herbicides was studied in a continuous field injection experiment in an aerobic aquifer. The sorption of MCPP and dichlorprop was insignificant. Rapid degradation after a lag phase was observed. Enhanced degradation of MCPP and dichlorprop was observed in laboratory experiments with pre-exposed aquifer materials from the field site.
