Abstract

With funding from NASA's Kennedy Space Center, the Clean Energy Research Institute (CERI) of the University of Miami, Florida, has launched the first phase of research to develop a means of detecting and predicting thermal pollution.

A mathematical model will be developed on the basis of studies of hot water discharges into ocean waters from a fossil fuel plant and discharges of saline water from nuclear plant cooling canals. In addition to on-site measurements, data will be gathered by NASA aircraft and satellites using infrared and laser remote sensing techniques.
