Environmental Fluid Mechanics 1: Mixing and Transport Processes in the Environment
by Scott A. Socolofsky, Gerhard H. Jirka
Publisher: Texas A&M University 2005
Number of pages: 184
In this book passive diffusion is treated by introducing the transport equation and its application in a range of unstratified water bodies. Passive diffusion refers to mixing processes that occur due to random motions and that have no direct feedback on the dynamics of the fluid motion.
