Dye tracer tests were conducted in Galveston Channel to determine the time required to remove or reduce to relatively low concentrations a contaminant from the channel and subsequently from the Galveston Bay complex. The tests consisted of releasing a quantity of rhodamine-b dye into the water and monitoring its dilution and despersion by continuous fluorometric analysis and by aerial photographs of the dye patch. Results of the test are discussed, and a set of empirical dilution factors have been computed. (Author)
