Abstract : The fate of pollutants discharged into any body of water represents one of today's most pressing problems. One discharged, these pollutants are distributed primarily by advection and turbulent diffusion. To estimate the magnitude of this latter mechanism, a determination of a term known as the turbulent dispersion coefficient is necessary. This memorandum represents a survey of some of the more recent attempts (through mid - 1971) made to define this coefficient for coastal regions, rivers, and estuaries. (Author)
