Environmental fluid mechanics (EFM) is the medical examine of shipping, dispersion and transformation techniques in traditional fluid flows on our planet Earth, from the microscale to the planetary scale. This booklet brings jointly scientists and engineers operating in examine associations, universities and academia, who interact within the examine of theoretical, modeling, measuring and software program points in environmental fluid mechanics. It presents a discussion board for the contributors, and exchanges new principles and services during the displays of updated and up to date total achievements during this box.

Secondly, constants of proportionality were introduced to take account of dissipation of concentration moments and of the increased background concentration resulting from diﬀusion out of the sheets and strands of source ﬂuid with high concentrations: μn ˆ − C) ˆ n + (−1)n (1 − C) ˆ Cˆ n , (16) = β n C(1 (αC0 )n where C Cˆ = . αC0 (Note that  used β 1/2 where we use β in Eq. e. ) Because of dissipation, β would be expected to be less than or equal to 1 and, to avoid negative variance, we need α 1.
Given the diﬃculty of making accurate estimates of the upper endpoint 20 N. C. J. Sullivan of a distribution, the degree of agreement here is very promising. Further investigation into the optimal ﬁtting of Eq. (28) is required, and also of the standard errors and biasses of the estimates. 5. Discussion The models described here were derived by considering the hypothetical case of no molecular diﬀusion, for which many exact results can be obtained, and then taking account of the physical eﬀects of molecular diﬀusion.
The corresponding model moments when diﬀusion is included, given by Eq. (16), satisfy the ﬁrst of Eq. (18). But the theory of probability distributions shows that this implies that the pdf must consist of two delta-functions (see, for example, the appendix of ). [24, 25] showed that this pdf, with moments given by Eq. (16), is ˆ ˆ − θmax ), p(θ) = (1 − C)δ(θ − θmin ) + Cδ(θ (21) where θmin = (1 − β)C 0 and θmax = (1 − β)C + αβC0 αC0 , (22) with equality in both cases when β = 1, which corresponds to being at the source, where we also have α = 1 and C0 = θ1 .
