Published Date: Series: Sea This review covers selected articles on the biological effects of pollutants and human physical disturbances on marine and estuarine plants, animals, ecosystems and habitats.

    The thermal discharge from coastal nuclear power plants and thermal power plants (CNATPP) not only increases the water temperature, but it also stratifies the seawater. Comprehending the characteristics of stratification that is caused by thermal discharge constitutes the basis for developing a comprehensive understanding of how thermal discharge affects marine organisms. -developed in the s by environmental scientists Mathis Wackernagel and William Rees-representation of environmental impact of an individual/population in terms of the cumulative amount of biologically productive land/water required to provide the raw materials consumed and to dispose of/recycle the waste produced.

The nearshore fish community of the Port River-Barker Inlet Estuary was sampled between January and May using a beach seine to determine the effect of thermal effluent on the community. We report effects of a thermal effluent on fish and zooplankton in an impoundment in South Carolina.

The effects are not directly due to heated effluent but are indirect effects on the trophic dynamics of the system and depend on the physical structure of the system, season, and geography. As effluent from a nuclear reactor cooling pond (Pond C) enters the larger Par Pond it sporadically Cited by: 9.

This means that, if a thermal effluent is discharged into a tropical estuary, there is ti strong possibility of permanent or long-term damage, the extent depending on the nature of the organisms, particularly the sessile plants and animals as opposed to the more motile forms, and on the relation between the area close t o the discharge and the Cited by:   Against this background of increasing awareness of the need for study of thermal effluent effects, and the current emphasis on Environmental Impact Assessment in relation to proposed new power station developments, recent studies, both long term and site-specific, have been undertaken which shed more light on the responses, subtle and otherwise.

Studies on the effects of thermal discharge on phytoplankton have been carried out by some authors 2,[12][13][14][15].Studies on the impact of thermal discharges on phytoplankton revealed that.

the area of the power station. The thermal effluent produces a mean increase of 4ºC in the proximity of the discharge and its effect on the water column gradually decreases on increasing the distance from the effluent.

At a distance of 20 m from the outfall, no differences were encountered. The preferred temperature of three Hawaiian coral-reef fishes — Acanthurus triostegus sandvicensis, Abudefduf abdominalis, and Chaetodon multicinctus — were determined in two-chambered tanks that permitted the fish to regulate behaviorally tank temperature.

Median selected temperatures over 72 h were as follows: adult C. multicinctus, ° C; juvenile C. multicinctus, ° C; adult Ab.

Thermal dispersion of heated effluent in a lake near nuclear power plant is analysed. Lake Bathymetry is established by data collection at a pre-planned matrix of sample points in the lake.

Three-dimensional geometric model of the lake is developed based on the geometric data collected, using a high accuracy GPS and a dead weight based depth meter at respective sample points of the lake matrix. POSSIBLE EFFECTS OF THERMAL EFFLUENTS ON FISH: A REVIEW found that some were consistently attracted to the outfall area of an atomic steam-generating plant in Humboldt, California; Walleye surfperch (Hyperpro- sopon argenteum) had a body temperature similar to that of the discharge, indicating that they had been in the effluent for some time.

In the United States, discharges of thermal effluent are regulated by section (a) of the Clean Water Act, which requires states to set limits for power plant thermal effluent in order to 'assure the protection and propagation of a balanced, indigenous population of shellfish, fish, and wildlife in and on that body of water' (CWA ).

The stabilization process probably reflects the combined effects of chemical, physical, and biological changes on the formation, stability, and decomposition of polysaccharides in the sediment. to reduce or eliminate thermal impacts from municipal wastewater treatment plant discharges to surface water.
