The general objective was to critically examine the effects of various thermal/acid levels on selected (dominant) primary producers obtained from the waters of segments of the Monongahela River in West Virginia, using micro-ecosystems simulation and phytoplankton sampling. Minor objectives also examined were: to define the limits of the physical system in terms of the interacting physical responses and also, to construct an empirical model from the data obtained and finally to ascertain whether or not there is significant reduction in the annual productivity of the primary producers under the interacting sets of stress condition studied.
