Using these equations, with worked examples, simple techniques are given for predicting rates of mixing in rivers. The problems dealt with are those which can be solved conveniently using nomographs, programmable calculators or, at most, a small mini-computer. Use of the semi-empirical techniques described can provide a preliminary assessment of the impact of effluent on water quality. (auth)
