An analytical solution to the heat transfer problem of dissipating the heat from 83F power plant coolant to 60F rock and sea water. The problem considers the concept of injecting the coolant into the Boulder Zone, the cavernous geological strata underlying all of South Florida, allowing a fresh water bubble to form, and cool for 30 days, before being recirculated back to the plant. The solution revealed that the average temperature of the bubble would be 68.3F with approximately 37 of the total water discharged at 61F and 17 at 83F. The remaining water, or approximately 46 would be a mixture at about 73.5F.
