Abstract : The report is concerned with the diffusion or transport of a passive substance by random motions of a turbulent fluid flow. The problem of air pollution is the most important single factor responsible for extensive study of the phenomenon of diffusion. The atmosphere is absorbing waste nearly around the clock, although its capacity to dilute and disperse the pollutants is at its lowest ebb during the night. It is this aspect of diffusion with which the report deals particularly. (Author)
