Seasonal Variations of Suspended Sediment in the East Anglian Plume, UK

51.5N 0.6E

March 5th, 2013 Category: Sediments

UK – March 5th, 2013

The East Anglian plume, a region of relatively high concentrations of suspended sediment, develops eastward from eastern England across the Southern Bight during the winter. Here, it can be seen as a stream of brown, golden and green hues spilling out of the Thames Estuary, east of London. During the summer the plume concentrations are lower. Despite these seasonal variations, the plume constitutes a major feature transporting sediment across the North Sea.
