Contaminants in rivers and streams: prediction of travel time and longitudinal dispersion
This publication discusses the theory of movement and dispersion of dissolved pollutants and introduces the unit-peak concentration concept. A summary of the methods used to collect time-of-travel information is given, along with a summary of the data used in the report. Methods are recommended for estimating the rate of movement and attenuation of conservative pollutants based on an analysis of the data.
