  In aquatic environments, pesticides can partition between the dissolved phase and particulate phase depending on the type of suspended sediment present and the physical and chemical properties of the pesticides and water. Particulate matter and sediment can alter the bioavailability of contaminants ?article=&context=ent_pubs.    Lake Victoria. Lake Victoria, the world’s second largest freshwater lake (68, km 2 in surface area and mean depth of 35 m) supports the world’s largest inland fishery and is a transboundary ecosystem with the Nyanza Gulf, on the extreme eastern edge forming the Kenya portion ().The gulf connects to the open lake via Rusinga ://

In addition, as they represent a significant reservoir of freshwater, estuarine and marine carbon, they become heavily colonised by hydrolytic aquatic bacteria. 52,53 Extensive hydrolysis of flocs results in the conversion of particulate organic matter (POM) to dissolved organic matter (DOM), altering the sinking properties of aggregates, and

Air-water exchange is the dominating process in the open ocean, and the association to sinking particulate organic The contaminants examined (e.g., Cu, Cr, Mo, Zn, Pb, U, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) represent a spectrum of pollutants that enter the coastal zone primarily as particulates (i.e., contaminated sediments).

Partitioning to particles has been shown to be inversely proportional to log solubility of the HOC (1) and to the log of particle concentration (2,3) and proportional to the organic carbon content of the particulate matter (4)   Overview of the Two Models.
