Abstract: We analyse dispersion of contaminants in turbulent boundary layer using centre manifold technique. The method describes long-term asymp- totics of the contaminant concentration as it becomes spread across the entire layer and is weakly distorted by the velocity shear. The dispersion is investigated in two cases: (a) logarithmic and (b) power veloc- ity profile across the layer according to a traditional and a more recent theory respectively. We deduce an advection-diffusion equation for the depth-average concentration in each case. The equation represents a leading approximation of the dynamics and can be ex- tended to include higher-order derivatives for better precision.
