Results of study of oxygen absorption phenomenon, mechanism causing transfer of oxygen into water, and development of practical method of estimating oxygen transfer rates in open channel flow; experimental determination of reaeration coefficient and longitudinal mixing coefficient demonstrated correlation between these parameters when depth of flow was taken as measure of eddy size; explanation of transfer by kinetic gas theory.
