||The effects of thermal stress on selected aquatic microorganisms were investigated. Numerous categories of temperature shock were studied with emphasis on simulation of the passage of water through a condensing system to determine the effects of this exposure, and the effects of such entrainment upon the microbial system below the discharge point. Three general groups of organisms were examined: protozoans, algae, and chytridiaceous fungi. New equipment developed specifically to aid in these studies (a simple apparatus for delivering heat shock to microorganisms) and a new fluorescent survey technique to characterize stress induced cellular alterations are described in detail.
