The paper discusses reactive systems that share the following common phenomenon: their reaction is either controlled by both kinetics and diffusion, or fully by diffusion. It reports on a study to investigate the significance of particle coagulation in the intitial mixing region of ocean discharged buoyant plumes. For simplicity, the study is limited to very small particles so that Brownian motion is the only coagulation mechanism.
