Visually Validating Expansion Characteristics in Acoustic Hydrothermal Plume Data

    Abstract

    Some recent geological findings suggest that hydrothermal plumes may have an impact on the ocean in the same order of magnitude as rivers. One of the distinctive characteristics of plumes is the expansion as they rise into the ocean. The vertical expansion of plumes is visible in photographs, and numerical analysis confirms that it is present in acoustic… (More)
