Hydrodynamic fluctuations are found to be important in many situations such as cosmology, condensed matter system and heavy-ion collisions. Recently, an effective field theory for fluctuating dissipative hydrodynamics has been developed in 1511.03646 and 1701.07817. We apply this theory to investigate nontrivial consequences of hydrodynamic fluctuations on the Bjorken expanding quark gluon plasma (QGP). In particular, we explore nontrivial effects due to interactions among hydrodynamical variables and noises which are systematically incorporated in the present framework but are not fully captured in conventional approaches.
