Abstract: The gas transfer coefficient is key to modeling dissolved oxygen levels in streams. Engineers commonly predict it as a function of mean flow depth, velocity, and slope. Large errors are common. A set of laboratory studies investigating reaeration under different resistance regimes explains one source of natural variability, and supports a physically-based predictive equation incorporating bed roughness.
