At present, a very important aspect that is present in the rivers and / or channels that transport superficial water is the dispersion that the chemical compounds can have in the superficial water flow. In general, the analysis of the dispersion of a pollutant in the field studies are the costs, for this reason the development of techniques for the analysis of the dispersion of a contaminant in the surface water flow in an open channel through the processing of digital images can also reduce the costs of this type of analysis, have various applications ranging from specific studies to the validation of numerical models. Analysis of the dispersion of the contaminant can afford the fate that the compounds in the water may have. Therefore, this work develops a method of analyzing the behavior of a tracer through its concentration without having to involve processes of mathematical modeling, where the dispersion of a contaminant in the water flow of an open channel through a mobile solid, using digital image processing. This work concluded that the effects of the dispersion on a tracer intensified the interposition of a solid with the movement in its path up to 93.3%, promoting the disorder in its molecules and the process of mixing with the medium.
