Abstract:

An analytical model is developed for the prediction of mixing and decay of a passive scalar within the turbulent wake of a submerged body operating beneath the ocean surface. The scaling parameters are identified from the governing equations. Moreover, a review of the existing theoretical and experimental studies of diffusion in an ocean environment is given. The application to the present problem of interest is briefly discussed.
