from the abstract, "In this report we have analyzed the effect of increasing [delta]T, the temperature rise across the condensers, by decreasing Q the cooling water flow rate, on the entrainment mortality rate per unit concentration, R/ n, of pump entrained organisms at Indian Point Units 2 and 3. We show that R/ n = Qf where f is the ratio of the number of organisms killed 24 hours after passage through a condenser tube to the number entrained. . ."
