The object was to develop an approximate technique for evaluating the dispersion and rate of settling of suspended sediment in a river and at the river-ocean interface. The technique of neutron activation analysis of samples was developed for the determination of the amount of aluminum in suspended sediment. A mathematical program, based on conservation of mass and compartmentalization of the river in two dimensions, was prepared. This program determines the time dependent mass transfer coefficients among compartments or predicts the suspended sediment movement among compartments. The program was not verified with actual data but was tested with trial data to give known solutions. (Author)
