Determination of Impacts of Nuclear and Thermal Power Plants on Hydroecosystems, Using Expert Assessment

B. Zdanowski
Inland Fisheries Institute, Poland


The problem of impacts of nuclear and thermal power plants on hydroecosystems was studied. Expert assessment methods for evaluating impact on hydroecosystems of various factors related to the functioning of power plants were analyzed. The set of criteria was proposed for expert assessment, which includes four subdivisions: (1) impact on hydrochemical characteristics, (2) impact on hydrodynamic characteristics, (3) impact on hydrothermal conditions, and (4) total engineering impact. The analysis of some examples for cooling reservoirs of nuclear and thermal power plants was described.
