A simple, two-layer model for predicting evaporative losses of nonionic synthetic chemicals from water is presented. Losses from well-stirred small vessels are predicted accurately. Losses from thermally stratified bodies of water were poorly predicted because turbulent mixing processes at the interfaces were retarded.
