Thermal Pollution
September 19th, 2009
Thermal pollution appears when due to human activity natural bodies of water get to change their normal temperature downwards or upwards. It is very common to use water as a cooling agent for a variety of devices in industry, particularly in power plants, then, this warmer water is returned to the environment but at a higher temperature. Animal species are highly affected by such modifications in their living environment since the levels of oxygen drop while the temperature changes kill fish.
