This investigation develops a description of mass transport in streams and rivers that is readily soluble and yet retains the basic mass transport mechanisms. The resulting model--the dead zone model--is developed from a logical simplification of the basic mass transport equation, is superior to the dispersed flow model, and does not suffer from the shortcomings of the complete descriptions. The superiority of the dead zone model over the dispersed flow model is demonstrated by comparing the ability of the models to predict the spread of inert tracer in channels and rivers, and applications are discussed.
