Do You Know About Causes And Effects of Thermal Pollution Degradation Of Water Quality Trivia Quiz

Let’s start the quiz

Thermal or "thermal pollution" is a process that reduces or reduces the quality of water and increases its ambient temperature. Which leads to an increase in temperature. This is due to the use of coolant water by various industrial plants such as thermal, nuclear, nuclear, coal factories, oil field generators, factories, and mills. Pollutants released from various industrial plants, such as factories and mills, decrease oxygen concentration with increasing water temperature. Fish in the water require 6ppm (per million parts) to survive which cannot tolerate high water temperatures and may fall to the brink of extinction. Aquatic organisms such as juvenile fish, plankton, fish, eggs, larvae, algae, and protozoa, are highly susceptible to death due to sudden temperature changes. Therefore, we can say that any type of pollution can directly or indirectly affect humans because the loss of biodiversity causes changes affecting all aspects of the environment.
