Abstract: A second tracer experiment to study the flow of power station cooling water in a cooling pond is described. Since the first experiment in March, 1958, the intake point had been deepened and extended into the pond in an attempt to avoid channelling. The technique used in this test was similar to that used in the first but severe weather conditions were experienced. The results showed that even a moderate wind had more effect on the flow pattern than any other factor. Some aspects of this effect were studied quantitatively. The different weather conditions experienced in the two test did not permit conclusive observations on the effects of the modified intake.
