Thermal Ecology: Environmental Teachings of a Nuclear Reactor Site
Whitfield Gibbons and Rebecca R. Sharitz
The Savannah River Plant in South Carolina provides
unique opportunities to study long-term environmental consequences of
temperature increases in aquatic habitats.
Although the temperatures are elevated by effluents from nuclear
production reactors, principles of thermal ecology can be derived that are
applicable to many natural, as well as man-modified, environments.
