dc.description.abstract

This study evaluates the impacts of turbulent mixing on nutrient load in the Swan Estuary using field measurements. Results showed that both down-gradient and upgradient fluxes influence the vertical mixing process. Assessing eddy diffusivity of mass and turbulent viscosity of Swan estuary, three distinct stratification zones were identified as low, medium and high. Results further showed that turbulence is even active in high stratified water columns in natural water bodies.
