In this study, the effects of thermal effluent on the abundance and diversity of microbes (diatoms and bacteria) are investigated. The abundance of diatoms (5.3 – 16 x 10^5 cells l^-1) and bacteria (110 – 2500 cfu ml^–1) showed reduction near the thermal effluent outfall (–56 and –96%, respectively). However, the effects of thermal effluent are limited to < 200 m from the outfall.
