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.

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.

The green trail stretching eastward off the coast of England is the East Anglian plume, a region of relatively high concentrations of sediments that develops eastward from eastern England across the Southern Bight. The plume is strongest during the winter months. Also visible across the water are sediments along the shoreline near the border of Belgium and Holland.
