Thermal / Heat Pollution

Is the act of altering the temperature of a natural water body, which may be a river, lake or ocean environment. This condition chiefly arises from the waste heat generated by an industrial process.Thermal / Heat Pollution

Major Sources of Thermal pollutionFossil-fueled electric power plantsNuclear-fueled electric power-generating facilitiesCooling operations associated with industrial manufacturingEarths surface temperatureCarbon Dioxide as product of combustion adding to the greenhouse gasesHot water vapor

Effects of Thermal PollutionEcological imbalance resulting in major fish kills near the discharge sourceAccelerates chemical-biological processesDecreases the ability of the water to hold dissolved oxygenThermal changes affect the aquatic system by limiting or changing the type of fish that grow and reproduce in waterContributes to greenhouse effect that results in global warming
