Title: Time of travel studies : average and high flows River Ock
Author: V. Johnson
Document Type: Monograph
This report was prepared by Consultancy Services, AEA Technology, and addresses NRA's requirement to measure the 'time of travel' for both average and high flow conditions in specified reaches of the River Ock. Rhodamine WT was used as a tracer in-determining water's travel time, in terms of the time of first arrival, peak arrival time and the average time for a labelled plume to pass specified reaches of the River Ock. The results are based on measurements made during the dry period 3rd to 11th March 1993 for the average flow, when there had been little rainfall since the very wet January. The measurements involving high flow conditions were made on the 15th and 16th of April after a very wet Easter. The dates for carrying out the.studies were agreed with the NRA.
