Abstract

Dead zones tend to hold back the downstream travel, to increase the longitudinal spreading and to provide a long tail of low concentration for passive contaminant releases in natural streams. Simple examples are used to quantify the effects of the dead zones upon contaminant dispersion in Couette flow, pipe and plane Poiseuille flows. -from Author
