Pollution by Diffusive Processes
The most serious types of pollution are those following the release of the pollutant from points within or on the boundary of a gaseous or liquid medium. The problems to be considered in this paper relate to the determination of the distribution of the pollutant within the medium and along the boundary of the medium.
