Horizontal dispersion in the surface waters of a medium-sized lake was investigated based on four experiments with ensembles of 14 to 17 drifters deployed in Lake Constance during the winter season. The experiments cover length scales between 30 and 3000 m which are typical for the grid length scales employed in 3-D models. Horizontal dispersion coefficients Kdisp were estimated to range from 0.01 to 0.03 m s 1 at 100 m and from 0.1 to 0.7 m s 1 at 1000 m length scale L of the drifter… CONTINUE READING
