Abstract:

An existing comprehensive physical model that correctly reproduced tides, tidal currents, and density currents throughout the entire Mobile Bay was used to determine the distribution characteristics in Mobile Bay of effluents from four possible discharge locations. This office made no attempt to analyze the results of the dye dispersion tests or draw any conclusions from these results. The dyes used in these model tests were conservative and so did not decay with time. Therefore, appropriate decay rates should be applied to the model test data as a basis for predicting prototype conditions. Author
