Four volatilization models were tested against field data from the Manchester Ship Canal and the River Main. The equations by MACKAY and YEUN, using Schmidt number and wind speed for the calculation of volatilization rate, were found to give the best results for the slowly flowing Ship Canal. Models using flow velocity grossly underestimated the real values for this waterway bur were found to be superior for the faster flowing River Main. The results of this work indicate that volatilization models should be carefully chosen for a particular environmental situation. Additionally, the importance of the validation of such models against field data is emphasised.
