Dissolved Oxygen

Dissolved oxygen analysis measures the amount of gaseous oxygen (O2) dissolved in an aqueous solution.The amount of DO determines the living amount of fish and other animals in the lakes and streams.

Temperature

The change of the temperature also effects the DO levels. Like when cold water holds more oxygen than the warm water does. Facilities such asathe nuclear power plants that can increase the temperature of lakes and the rivers, when they use th water as cooling agent.
