In this location the trunkline and MEG pipeline were installed side by Size: 1MB. River plumes are generated by the flow of buoyant river water into the coastal ocean, where they significantly influence water properties and circulation. They comprise dynamically distinct regions spanning a large range of spatial and temporal scales, each contributing to the dilution and transport of freshwater as it is carried away from the source. River plume structure varies greatly among. Environ Fluid Mech state Reext →∞; u∞ is the velocity at the boundary layer height δ and νa is the cinematic viscosity of the ambient air.

modelling study of dispersion of elevated plumes at a coastal location during onshore flow by P. J. Cooper Download PDF EPUB FB2

A field tracer study was conducted in a hilly area on the coast of California to provide data for evaluating air quality dispersion models.

Dual tracers and meteorological measurements were taken both onshore and offshore in order to investigate the transport and dispersion of pollutant plumes released from offshore sources and carried to coastal complex : Timothy C.

Spangler, Victoria C. Johnson. Coastal regions are particularly interesting as topographic variations and land-sea interface govern the local flow. Pollutant plumes in the coastal zones are influenced by development of meso-scale sea breeze circulations as a result of differential heating of the land and water surfaces [1,2].Cited by: A study was conducted to evaluate the ability of a steady-state Gaussian model to simulate plume dispersion over elevated terrain.

Dispersion Modelling and Observations from Elevated Sources in Coastal Terrain. The dispersion of plumes from all power stations throughout the year is not only influenced by the terrain blocking and channeling of the synoptic winds, but also by mesoscale wind systems such as sea breezes and drainage flows.

Carras J.N., Williams D.J Author: J. Noonan, W. Physick, J. Carras, D. Williams. OCD – Offshore and coastal dispersion model (OCD) is a Gaussian model developed to determine the impact of offshore emissions from point, area or line sources on the air quality of coastal regions.

It incorporates overwater plume transport and dispersion as well as changes that occur as the plume crosses the shoreline.

This study examines the dispersion patterns during gradient, onshore flow. Fumigation and plume trapping, in particular, appear to cause serious degradation of air quality. Numerical Modelling and Field Study of Thermal Plume Dispersion in Rivers and Coastal Waters Abolghasem Pilechi Thesis submitted to the Faculty of Graduate and Flow velocity and depth were also measured simultaneously using an acoustic Doppler current profiler.

modeling and Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) is developed to study the dispersion of a buoyant plume in a complex configuration. Salt-water modeling based on the analogy between salt-water flow and fire induced flow has proven to be a successful method for the qualitative analysis of fire induced plumes.

The study was designed to measure both the hydrodynamic fields and the concentration fields during the period of dye release.

To quantify the hydrodynamics, an array of fixed current meters were distributed throughout the study site, centered on the east-west axis of the study area ().The orientation of the instruments was based on preliminary long-term current meter data sets which showed.

This study examines the reliability of a popular sharp-interface analytical approach for estimating the extent of sea water in a homogeneous coastal aquifer subjected to pumping and regional flow.

This slender flow (∼35 km wide) is maintained by an enormous coastal freshwater discharge [estimated to be ∼23 m 3 s −1 on average, Royer ()] that is distributed along the coast of the Gulf of Alaska, and by onshore Ekman transport from the predominantly downwelling-favorable alongshelf wind stress (Stabeno et al.

The depth of the "turning point" of these two processes is approximately DE where DE is the Ekman depth. The new formula for the advection time is found to be consistent with estimates derived from the use of particle trajectory analysis in the numerical model.

The numerical model used in this study is the Princeton Ocean Model. The model equations and the numerical algorithms used to solve them have been described in detail by Blumberg and Mellor () and will not be repeated here. The model solves the 3D primitive equations on an Arakawa C grid; it uses sigma coordinates in the vertical and curvilinear coordinates in the by: A study of the atmospheric dispersion of an elevated release with plume rise in a rural environment: which allow us to evaluate the plume dispersion during neutral and unstable atmospheric conditions.

Meteorological and turbulent data used for dispersion modelling are averaged on the duration of discharge and sampling. Coastal atmospheric conditions widely vary from those over inland due to the land-sea interface, temperature contrast and the consequent development of local circulations.

In this study a field meteorological experiment was conducted to measure vertical structure of boundary layer during the period June, at three locations Seabee base, Harrison and Wiggins sites in the Mississippi.

Additionally, hydrothermal plumes are likely to be very important for the transport and distribution of marine organisms, especially thermophile or hyperthermophile bacteria that live under the seafloor and have been released into the ocean in plumes resulting from recent volcanic events such as at CoAxial Segment, Axial Volcano and the Gorda Ridge (see the "Snowblower vent" spewing clumps of.

Dispersion of pollutants in urban areas is still challenging task in environmental sciences. Complex processes like the dispersion of accidental releases of harmful gas in built-up areas are not yet fully understood.

For a better understanding of the phenomena it is helpful to study flow and dispersion within an idealised setting first. limited data sample was available for this effort, fully acknowledging that studying the dispersion of effluent from coastal ocean sewage outfalls has continued to be a difficult problem to study because the condi-in situ tions are constantly changing as Jones, et al.

A contamination by petroleum hydrocarbons was detected in a sandy aquifer below a petrochemical plant in Southern Italy. The site is located near the coastline and bordered by canals which, together with pumping wells, control submarine groundwater discharge toward the sea and seawater intrusion (SWI) inland.

Abstract— Subsea plumes are caused by uncontrolled release of fluids from a well during drilling or leakages from risers or pipelines.

Subsea plumes can cause water pollution, fire and instability of rigs and floating vessels. The consequences of subsea plume formation can be catastrophic with severe financial, health and safety implications.

Compilation of atmospheric dispersion models. Atmospheric dispersion models are computer programs that use mathematical algorithm s to simulate how pollutant s in the ambient atmosphere disperse and, in some cases, how they react in the atmosphere.

The dispersion models are used to estimate or to predict the downwind concentration of air pollutant s emitted from sources such as industrial.

The connectivity between estuaries and the coastal ocean is important for the transport of sediments, nutrients, and contaminants. Much scientific research has been focused on processes within the estuary or the freshwater plume, with an emphasis on large plumes, separately.

In the stable atmosphere case (producing a fanning plume), there is horizontal dispersion at a right angle to the wind due to turbulence and diffusion. In the vertical, dispersion is suppressed by the stability of the atmosphere, so pollution does not spread toward the ground.
