  The Airports Commission's decision on whether to add an Inner Thames Estuary airport proposal to a shortlist for further appraisal.   How the River Thames was brought back from the dead. Sixty years ago, nothing could survive in the Thames – but today it is home to seals, porpoises and even the occasional stray whale.

Pollution of the Thames Previous page: Ice blocks in the Thames. During the long course of ages, London in its constant growth had been systematically polluting the beautiful river by pouring into it its sewage and rendering it one huge sewer. This horrible custom had begun in very early days and had gone on steadily increasing.

This helps alleviate the pollution problem. The salt marsh is a very resilient ecosystem (it actually filters out much of the sewage) and remains fairly stable. Thames Water has been hit with a record fine of £m after huge leaks of untreated sewage into the Thames and its tributaries and on to land.

A brief account is given of the present state of development of methods for forecasting the effects of pollution on estuaries and coastal waters. In the case of vertically homogeneous estuaries the concentration of given pollutants at a chosen state of tide and given freshwater flow can be determined by means of a one-dimensional steady-state mathematical model in which use is made of Cited by: 6.

Climate change and the Thames estuary Submitted by on Tue, 23/09/ - The Environment Agency commissioned climate scientists from the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, Met Office Hadley Centre and Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory to investigate what impact climate change will have on the area over the next years.

Abstract. Tubifex tubifex, Limnodrilus hoffmeisteri, Tubifex costatus, and Peloscolex benedeni were sequentially the numerically dominant tubificids along 65 km of the intertidal zone in the Thames estuary seaward of London Bridge.

Laboratory experiments on their salinity tolerance, thermal tolerance, anaerobic tolerance, particle size preference and respiration assisted in explaining the Cited by: Fromthe majority of such goods to enter Britain will come via the Thames Estuary and the London Gateway port, exerting their toll on the environment and local ecology.

This is a major feat considering that fifty years ago the river was so polluted that it was declared biologically dead. From to tens of thousands of people died of cholera as a result of the pollution in the Thames. Sewage was being discharged.the Thames up to 50 times a year causing aesthetic, environmental and health impacts.

The Tideway was required to meet the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive by The aim of the Directive is to protect the environment from the adverse effects of waste water discharges.
