Abstract: The initial charge of the ASCE Committee on Thermal Pollution of the Sanitary Engineering Division was to investigate and correlate available information regarding the effect, from a sanitary engineering standpoint, of the unnatural increase or decrease of water temperature caused by the industrial use of water. The general categories of the resulting bibliography include (1) general properties of heat and heat exchange between water and atmosphere, (2) effects of heated discharges on the receiving body of water, and (3) effects of heated discharges on uses made of the receiving body of water. Categories (2) and (3) contain the greater number of articles; specifically studies on cooling ponds, water supplies, lakes and reservoirs, rivers and streams, stratified flow problems, mixing and dispersion, instrumentation methods and devices, and effects on aquatic life. The bibliography is in alphabetic order according to the author. It is not in any order based on the classifications given above.
