BUOYANCY SPREAD OF WASTE WATER IN COASTAL REGIONS

Ian Larsen, Torben Sorenson

Abstract


Waste water may due to buoyancy effects spread horizontally on top of the recipient. The spreading is chiefly determined by the buoyancy flux and to a large extent unaffected by dilution and diffusion. This phenomenon is of great practical importance for larger outfalls of waste or cooling water in coastal regions.
