Fluorescent Tracer Mixing Experiments in Glenmore Reservoir, Calgaryby Donald Steven Graham, Univ of Western Ontario, Dep of, Geography, London, Ont, Canada,

Part of: Water for Resource Development
Abstract: Mixing studies using salt and dye as tracers were conducted in Glenmore Reservoir which is the major water supply for the City of Calgary, Alberta. The purpose of the studies was to find characteristic advective and mixing rates for reservoir management. Typical values of horizontal turbulent dispersion coefficients and vertical coefficients depending on stratification were found. Wind-induced dye cloud advection dominated flow-thru advection in late fall.
