Abstract

An examination is made of the consequences of a special type of convection on the behaviour of hot plumes emitted from tall chimneys. The type of convection envisaged is that in which thermals, originating at the ground, transport heat and other surface constituents to great heights. As they rise they amalgamate with each other and entrain air at all levels.
