A method of measuring concentrations of solutions of dye for dispersion studies in laboratory channels is described. The method uses black and white photography, followed by analysis of the photographs with a microdensitometer to determine dye concentration. The calibration curve was measured by photographing a group of bowls with solutions of known concentration. Routine use of the method showed it was reproducible and enabled measurements at many hundred points to be made with a single photograph.
