Consider that you are part of a modeling team which should develop a model to convert ambient air concentrations of a particular organic compound like dioxins into the concentration in milk from dairy cows. Consider the various environmental concentrations you would want to estimate as a function of the air concentration: on the leaves of grass, in the soil and in the soil water, in the grass itself (or parts of the grass), and through the cow from ingestion and inhalation and into the milk.
