Solute transport rates within the uppermost 2 cm of a rippled continental shelf sand deposit, with a mean grain size of 400–500 mm and permeabilities of 2.0–2.4 10 m, have been measured in situ by detecting the breakthrough of a pulse of iodide after its injection into the bottom water. These tracer experiments were conducted on the USA Middle Atlantic Bight shelf at a water depth of B13m using a small tethered tripod that carried a close-up video camera, acoustic current meter, motorized 1.5… CONTINUE READING
