C. Crowther and H. G. Ruston (1911) demonstrated gradients in rainfall acidity decreasing from the center of Leeds, England and associated the acidity with coal combustion. E. Gorham (1957, 1958) established that acid precipitation affects the acid-neutralizing capacity of lakes and bogs. A. Dannevig (1959) of Norway recognized the relationship between acid precipitation, lake and stream acidity, and the disappearance of fish. S. Oden (1968) used trajectory analysis to demonstrate that acid precipitation in Sweden was the result of long-range transport and transformation of sulfur emissions from England and central Europe.

The turbulent profile is “fatter,” or fuller, than the laminar profile. For the turbulent profile, from the outer edge to a point near the surface, the velocity remains reasonably close to the freestrearn velocity; it then rapidly decreases to zero at the surface. In contrast, the laminar velocity profile gradually decreases to zero from the outer edge to the surface. Now consider the velocity gradient at the wall, (dV/dy)y=0, which is the reciprocal of the slope of the curves shown in Figure 4 evaluated at y = 0.
