Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: The mixing characteristics between two layers, freshwater energy over a practically stagnant saline water, together with the average internal stress are examined in a laboratory channel. The vertical velocity distribution is examined at three stations equally separated. The distribution of velocities was examined only in the two sections. Entrainment is evaluated from density and velocity observations. The stress determinations are based on the flow equation of the saline water layer and the freshwater layer. In deriving the freshwater equation, care was taken to include terms arising from entrainment.
