Reaeration coefficients of six streams in New York; a comparison of results obtained by a hydrocarbon-gas tracer method with those obtained by radioactive tracers and predictive equations; 1986; WRI; 85-4028; Stedfast, D. A.; Draper, R. E.

Summary

Stream-reaeration measurements were made in selected reaches on six streams in New York State from 1978 to 1981 with hydrocarbon-gas and dye tracers. The sites were Canadaigua Outlet near Canadaigua, Oswego River at Fulton, Hudson River at Fort Miller, Cayadutta Creek near Johnstown, Chenango River near Morrisville, and Payne Brook near Hamilton. The reaches represent a wide range of discharge, water-surface slope, velocity, and streambed composition. Flows ranged from less than 2 cu ft/sq on the Chenango River to 4,100 cu ft/sq on the Hudson River, and water-surface slope within the reaches ranged from less than 1 foot/mile on the Hudson and Oswego Rivers to more than 50 ft/mi on Cayadutta Creek. The corresponding stream-reaeration [...]
