This notice announces an April meeting of the Exposure Modeling Work Group (EMWG). The EMWG meetings are sponsored by the Office of Pesticide Programs' Environmental Fate and Effects Division (EFED). The theme for this meeting is ``pesticides in air'' and will include presentations on pesticide volatilization from soil, pesticide spray drift and pesticide in rain water. The purpose of the meetings is to update those in the pesticide regulatory community on advances in estimating pesticide concentrations in media of concern through computer simulation. Improvements in estimation of pesticide exposure lead directly to improvements in estimation of risk both to the environment and to human health.
