Abstract: Field data from estuarine surveys of Delaware and James Rivers; net seaward movement of organic impurities is due to displacement by land runoff and to longitudinal diffusion of tidal action; differential equation for concentration of organic material, its rate of oxidation, and resulting rate of reaeration under steady state condition; turbulent diffusion coefficient and deoxygenation rate are determined from analysis of survey data.
