The mixing of pollutants in rivers, lakes, and reservoirs because of turbulence and spatial non-conformities in the velocity field considerably influences the fate of these materials. Mixing is an important factor when controlling water quality independently, whether it be a question of the deoxygenation, thermal pollution, contamination by heavy metals, or eutrophication--issues that have been central research themes of the Resources and Environment Area at IIASA over the past few years. This article considers transverse mixing in rivers, a phenomenon of great importance for wide rivers. A new approach is presented and tested on the basis of a wide range of experiments, from laboratory flumes to large natural rivers such as the Danube.
