Workers installed two WHOI acoustic instruments on Maxx3: an acoustic Doppler current profiler and an imaging multibeam sonar. The instruments provided a detailed view of the cross sectional area and the velocity of the gushing jet of oil and gas. Multiply these average areas by their average velocities and you get a good estimate of the rate of oil and gas released. (Photo by Andy Bowen, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
