The current lecture notes hide a primary path in th~ commonest varieties of stratified flows encountered in Environ­ psychological Hydraulics. many of the flows are buoyancy flows, i.e. currents within which gravity acts on small density variations. half I offers the fundamental strategies of stagnant, densit- stratified water, and of flowing non-miscible stratified fluids. The similarity to the (presumed) recognized open channel move, topic to a discounted gravity, is illustrated. half II treats the miscible density stratified flows. In outlining the governing equations, the robust coupling among the turbulence (the blending) and the suggest movement is emphasised. The presentation and discussions of the elemental governing equa­ tions are by way of illustrative examples. Separate chapters are dedicated to Dense backside Currents, unfastened Penetrative Convec­ tion, Wind-driven Stratified move, Horizontal Buoyancy movement and Vertical jet/plumes. half III offers a few examples of sensible difficulties solved at the foundation of data given within the current lecture notes. it's the author's event that the themes handled in bankruptcy eight and within the next chapters are specially good­ fitted to self-tuition, via a study-circle. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT the writer has benefited by means of the precious support of his col­ legues on the Institute of Hydrodynamics and Hydraulic Engin­ eering, the Technical collage of Denmark, specifically our librarian Mrs. Kirsten Dj¢rup, our secretary Mrs. Marianne Lewis and our technical draftsman Mrs. Liselotte Norup.

5), which expresses the upstream oil-thickness hO as a function of the river densimetric Froude number, is plotted in Fig. 2, where measurements performed by D. Wilkinson [1971] are shown as well. From Fig. 2 we obtain the condition for oil containment in practise IF l1 < ~ O. 6) O. 2 In a specific river where a risk for an oil spill is present, the yearly variation of the river densimetric Froude number at a certain station is illustrated in Fig. 3. 5 1/12 Fig. 3 113 1/6 119 1/12 The yearly variation of the densimetric Froude number for a specific location in a river.

V ,1 1/4 V s2 S (VE . 34) We may compensate for the crude approximation concerning the velocity distribution by introducing the cross average velocity V (I: = Vs /2 and the velocity distribution coefficient a v s 3 dn / V 3 y) = 2. Hence, the result, Eq. expressed in more general terms as 1/2 PROD"super" p (aV2) (V", . 35) ) in accordance with the statement above.

The re- sults are plotted in Fig. 1 which only intends to be a comprehensive answer to the practical important question: "In which geophysical phenomena is it allowable to use the constant flux Richardson number concept, and in which has one to use the constant bulk flux Richardson number lR~?
