United Kingdom – April 2nd, 2013

The East Anglian plume is a stream of relatively high concentrations of suspended sediment that develops eastward from eastern England across the Southern Bight. The plume is a major source for sediment transport across the North Sea, but it is strongest during the winter and has lower concentrations during the summer. Here, in early spring, the plume is quite visible, although the exact concentrations can be discerned only through testing the water.
