Effects of waste heat inputs on the water budgets of the Great Lakes / Acres Consulting Services Limited. : En39-70/1974E-PDF

"Monthly heat transfer coefficients were calculated for each of the Great Lakes including Georgian Bay, by means of a steady-state model. Overlake meteorological data gathered during the International Field Year for the Great Lakes (IFYGL) provided information on lake modification of atmospheric parameters. Using updated predictions of the waste heat inputs to the Great Lakes in the year 2000 A.D., evaporative losses due to once-through cooling were estimated at 1 per cent of the mean flow down the St. Lawrence River. The use of wet cooling towers is expected to increase the losses by 40 per cent. An estimated 17 per cent of the evaporative losses from either system is expected to be recovered within the basin as precipitation"--Abstract.
