by R. Kent,

Serial Information: Journal of the Sanitary Engineering Division, 1960, Vol. 86, Issue 2, Pg. 15-48

Document Type: Journal Paper


Turbulent diffusion in well-mixed tidal estuary is considered; practicable theory is presented from which quantitative predictions of mean pollutant-concentration distributions may be obtained for estuary characterized by steady-state salinity and velocity fields which are considered to vary only in axial direction.
