There are some contradictory opinions on the minimum value of Ri for a transition from laminar to turbulent flow. 25 (Prandtl, 1952) is usually accepted. Much lower values have been observed near a solid boundary. 5 DENSITY CURRENTS Density stratification can greatly influence the distribution of an incoming mass of water that could contain pollutants. The incoming volume of water may flow over, under, or through the main water mass as a result of gravity and the density characteristics of the respective water masses.

13 SEICHES When the wind blows, it causes a piling up of the water on the windward side of the lake. The inclination of the water surface resulting from the wind is usually in the order of a few decimetres in large lakes and a few centimetres in small lakes. Morphometric conditions in lakes are, however, strongly modifying and, consequently, general rules are difficult to postulate. 7) where s is expressed as the total difference in height between the windward side and the leeside of the lake, g=acceleration resulting from gravity, =mean depth, w=wind velocity and l=length of the basin.

The increase in the width of the plume exceeds that of a simple linear increase. Although resulting from turbulence, the dispersion process at sufficient distances from the source becomes more similar to molecular diffusion. This development is the consequence of the growing plume, causing an increase in the size of turbulent eddies, which become increasingly important. The size of the turbulent eddies does have an upper limit, which is why this type of diffusion eventually becomes similar to that of molecular diffusion.
