|Abstract:||Solutions are given to the complete two-dimensional transport equations for the distribution of both adsorbing and non-adsorbing solutes released from a continuous point source into a wide river flowing with uniform velocity and with constant anisotropic turbulent diffusion coefficients. These results contain the asymptotic Gaussian expressions often used to describe the far field distributions. The present results allow the near field distributions to be evaluated in situations where complex source distributions occur which do not substantially alter the turbulent diffusion coefficients. Several simple formulae are presented for the non-adsorbing case; these give the length, breadth and area of a plume contour associated with a particular concentration reference level.|
