Short summary
We examined gas-particle partitioning and size-fraction specific particle phase distributions for current use pesticides, identifying seasonal, and source-related trends, and contrasting with those of legacy organochlorine pesticides. The timing of pesticide use, seasonal air concentration trends, and particle size distributions were related. This informs our understanding of the atmospheric fate and transport of current use pesticides.
