Results Experiment 1: Field tests on the lethal effect of hot-water spray on emersed quagga mussels.

Results Experiment 2: Evaluation of the time needed to reach and sustain the lethal temperatures in the inaccessible areas.

Results Experiment 3: Field test on the time required for contact temperature in the special areas to reach and sustain the lethal temperatures

Results Experiment 4: Validation on the data generated from experiments 1-3
