Abstract
    A solution of one hundred kilograms of B rhodamine was introduced in a sewer which discharges into the sea. The dispersion of the discharge was observed and located by means of 4 optical theodolites and by air photographs. Water samples were collected in the coloured plume and on its boundaries during a whole tidal cycle. They were analysed by spectrofluorimetry. The results demonstrate the complexity of the factors that affect water movements. The drift seems to be mainly due to the wind. The predominating winds contribute to maintain the waste water closely to the water line over a distance of several miles.
