Methods used to determine proximity to methyl bromide use from the California PUR system by section of the PLSS grid illustrated for 3-, 5-, and 8-km radius buffers around a residence (*).
Map edge matching is guesswork without the PLSS as DOR defined it during original conversion.
TruViu(TM) PLSS minimizes floor space while expanding hardware capability to 6 pumps, 6 MFCs, 6 weigh scale inputs, and redundant transmitters for critical process parameters as pH, dissolved oxygen and temperature.
2], we continued the described stepwise multiple regression modeling procedure, adding variables that might modify the relationship between use and air concentrations including: percent pounds applied upwind of monitor (percentage of pounds applied in the upwind PLSS section on day i, as determined by the average wind direction, of the total pounds applied in both circles), percent pounds applied aerially in the PLSS sections within both circles on day i, monitor location, maximum daily temperature, average daily wind speed, and average daily rainfall.
c) For model series 1, pesticide use in PLSS sections within a 3-mi radius of monitor was entered as one variable.
Recently, California PUR data have been used to identify population groups residing in high pesticide use areas at the county, zip code, census block, or PLSS section level and to examine links between use patterns and outcomes of interest, such as adult and childhood cancers (Clary and Ritz 2003; Gunier et al.
One way to increase the spatial resolution of the PUR beyond the square-mile PLSS section is by using land-use survey data available from the California Department of Water Resources (CDWR 2002; Miller et al.
The PLSS is a nationwide survey that grids the land in each state into approximately 1-square-mile rectangular units called sections.
