Abstract: Velocities, turbulences and longitudinal dispersion were measured by ADV- and tracer-measurements at natural open channels. A novel method to determine the momentum demonstrate the influence of secondary currents and the weak accordance between data and model predictions, the hydraulic resistance respectiveley. A second method will be presented to distinguish the stream heterogeneity at non-uniform flows and to quantify the flow and the dispersion of pollutants.
