This paper presents an analysis of measurements of mean flow and turbulence statistics in bubble plumes conducted in a large experimental tank (digester) at a wastewater treatment plant. Profiles of dissipation rates of turbulent kinetic energy are presented for the first time, together with distributions for the turbulent kinetic energy and Kolmogorov length scales. Dissipation rates obtained from time velocity series and SCAMP measurements are also compared.
