Mathematical modeling of the zone of flow (re-)establishment (ZFE) of heated water surface jets has been found to be difficult because of the complex dependence on outlet geometry, discharge velocity, buoyancy, and ambient currents. Laboratory experiments have therefore been conducted to provide more observations and data on flow patterns, temperatures, and flow velocities in the ZFE and some distance beyond. The relationships provided can be used to make more accurate temperature predictions in the immediate vicinity of a heated water surface channel.
