Abstract

The sediment balance in jet flow at the mouth of the Jordan River near its entrance to Lake Kinneret was studied via application of dynamics equations and experimental measurements. Changes in the concentrations of the particulate matter (PM) and pollutants associated with the particles were documented along the flow. These changes are produced by two main mechanisms: PM sedimentation caused by attenuation of the jet flow velocity, and the dilution of river water with lake water. The first process dominat
