According to a recent study, our rivers are heating up due to decreased water flows and rising atmospheric temperatures, which are posing serious problems for society, ecosystems, and aquatic life.

The study was published in the journal, ‘Hydrological Processes’.

A key regulator of all the physical, chemical, and biological activities in rivers is water temperature. For species like fish who are unable to control their own body temperatures, it is especially crucial. The health of individuals using rivers for industrial, household, and recreational purposes depends on their temperature.
