Effects of Cooling Water Discharge on Primary Production and Composition of Bottom Fauna in a Fjord
- 91 Downloads
The increasing number and size of power stations result in an increase of discharges of cooling water. It is, therefore, necessary to develop instruments for calculating ecological effects of these cooling water discharges. When such instruments are developed, it is possible to make rational decisions on topics like location of power stations and their discharges and limits to the amount of discharges. In this chapter, two types of instruments for calculating the ecological effects of cooling water discharges are described.
