Abstract: Turbulent liquid jets discharging vertically upward into liquid of greater density are considered; investigations with hydraulic model that simulated conditions at southern California ocean outfalls, with primary fluids of densities equivalent to those of sewage and secondary fluids of densities equivalent to those of receiving waters; formulas to determine whether discharge would spread at surface, beneath surface, or in both these areas.
