On Possible Undesirable Atmospheric Effects of Heat Rejection from Large Electric Power Centers,

Pagination or Media Count:
An assessment is made of potential atmospheric effects that might be caused by the dissipation into the air of waste heat from large electric power generating complexes. The assessment is based on three components 1 an estimate of the thermal and moisture perturbation on the atmosphere that might be expected from power generating facilities, 2 a search for observations of how nature responds to perturbations of this kind, and 3 interpretation of numerical experiments dealing with atmospheric processes using similar perturbations.
