Document Type: Journal Paper


Results of recent reservoir test with radioactive tracers confirm previous results that ocean eddy diffusion coefficient is function of eddy size; tests of eddy diffusion in pipe lines are analyzed and compared with Taylor's theoretical solution; pipe line coefficients are greater, as expected, because of obstructions and curved sections in pipe; simple dosing and sampling devices for tracers are described.
