Seamounts contribute to globally significant hydrothermal fluxes, but the dynamics and impacts of fluid flow through these features are poorly understood. Numerical models of coupled heat and fluid flow illustrate how seamounts induce local convection in the oceanic crust. We consider idealized axisymmetric seamounts and calculate mass and heat fluxes by using a coupled heatand fluid-flow model. By using P. Wessel’s global database of ;15,000 seamounts identified through satellite gravimetry… CONTINUE READING
