Abstract

In this chapter we consider several aspects of passive diffusion in the environment. In this book, passive diffusion is defined to be the diffusion of chiefly abiotic objects that are not capable of performing random motion without the help of environmental turbulence. Likewise, active diffusion is defined to be the diffusion of objects, chiefly animals, that perform motion by themselves.
