Abstract
Qinshan Nuclear Power Station is located in the Haiyan County of Zhejiang Province in east China. The warm water from their cooling systems is discharged into the Hangzhou Bay directly which will affect the ecosystem of coastal area in the bay. To study the influence of warming effect from the thermal discharge of the Qinshan Nuclear Power Station Phase2 and Phase3, the remote sensing image of the marine airborne multi-spectrum scanner (MAMS), the numerical modeling based COHERENS (A coupled Hydrodynamical Ecological Model for Regional Shelf seas) and shipboard water column measurements are all applied to explore the spatial and temporal distribution of the warm water. In order to get accurate boundary conditions, a larger area was simulated firstly to provide hydrodynamic parameter for the modeling area in the numerical simulation. From the remote sensing image, the numerical simulation and field observations, we can conclude that the thermal effluent from the Qinshan Phase2 and Phase3 cooling systems just influences coastal water on a small scale.
