Sediments of East Anglian Plume, United Kingdom

71.5N 23.4E

May 28th, 2013 Category: Sediments

United Kingdom – May 27th, 2013

There is seasonal variation in the suspended sediment distribution in the Southern North Sea. The East Anglian plume, a region of relatively high concentrations, develops eastward from eastern England across the Southern Bight during the winter. During the summer the plume concentrations are lower.

Scientists studying the fluxes within the plume suggest that 6.6×106 t of suspended matter was transported eastward in one year, with possible errors of ±50%. Comparison with published sediment budgets for the coastal area of eastern England shows that the plume constitutes a major feature transporting sediment across the North Sea (click here for more information).

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.

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

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.

UK – January 27th, 2013

The trail of sediments spilling out of the mouth of the River Thames, east of London (below the center of this image), and northeast across the North Sea is a phenomenon known as the East Anglian Plume. The plume is strongest during the winter months.

East Anglian Plume by United Kingdom and Small Phytoplankton Bloom by Netherlands – August 25th, 2012

United Kingdom – August 18th, 2012

The trail of sediments spilling out of the Thames Estuary and eastward across the Southern Bight is a phenomenon known as the East Anglian Plume. Although the plume tends to be weakest in the summer and strongest in the winter, it is still visible here. Also of note to the south of the plume, just off the coast of the Netherlands, is a small, bright blue phytoplankton bloom.
