Abstract : The parameters which control the diffusion of heat from an ocean sited nuclear power plant are studied. This problem is sometimes referred to as the thermal plume problem. Dimensional analysis is applied to identify dimensionless groups which are involved in the diffusion of heat from the ocean sited plant.
