Current Meter Array
Velocities 2006 - 2007

GIF animation of low-pass-filtered (10-day cutoff) currents observed on
the LADDER PO mooring array. Red arrows: Velocities at the depth of the
neutrally buoyant hydrothermal particle plumes (2450m). Green arrows:
Velocities at crest depth (2600m). Blue arrow: velocity at 2930m on the
western EPR flank.
