Abstract:

Since several diffusion equations exist for describing horizontal diffusion from a point-source release of material in the ocean, a comparison of these equations was made in order to determine the one which would give the most conservative answers for purposes of evaluation of radiological hazards. This comparison can be made in terms of the maximum spatial and temporal coordinates of a given concentration. In so doing it is found that these coordinates can be expressed in terms of the ratio of the initial concentration to the given concentration raised to some power. Equations were derived for the case of a continuous release and a similar analysis was made for the equilibrium situation. Author
