Influence of advection, dispersion, transient storage and biochemical decay on the propagation of pollutants discharged by wet weather overflows or continuous spills into streams

A. Paoletti, U. Sanfilippo & I. Innocenti
The paper analyses, under the hypothesis of steady flow in the receiving stream, the relative importance of the physical processes of advection, dispersion, transient storage in dead zones and biochemical decay on the one-dimensional propagation of pollutants, for intermittent spill (like from a sewer overflow in wet weather) or continuous spill (like from a waste water treatment plant outflow), depending on river morphology and biochemical decay rate. Two different reaches, one straight and the other...
