Abstract:

A field study in a thermally polluted reach of the North Saskatchewan River at Edmonton, Alberta, was organized in December 1968, to test a previously developed method of predicting river temperatures due to thermal pollution sources. It was hoped to investigate lateral mixing of heated water determine the relation between an ice front and the zero-degree isotherm measure water-surface heat-loss rates and relate them to meteorological conditions and determine the relation between meteorological conditions immediately over the river and those recorded at official stations nearby.
