Abstract : The applicability of Richardson's 'four-thirds law' to turbulent horizontal diffusion, the dependence of diffusion on the weight of the diffusers, and the effects of varying the rejection level of the data were investigated. Diffusers of identical size and shape but weighing 13 or 15 pounds were photographed from a Navy US2-A aircraft. The data were collected in Monterey Bay on scales from 25 meters to 200 meters, with water depths ranging from 220 to 270 feet. (Author)
