although it is there already, having passed the keys long, long ago.
Is it possible to source this material directly without having someone do a report about it? ... (haven't done much digging myself).
I don't see how the current from the black smokers would go away, but I would like to know what the configuration of that current is beneath the
There is one ENORMOUS diffuse methane plume at least 600 (Meters or feet?) tall floating in one area, and I heard of a Methane river (more
concentrated) flowing on the floor of the Gulf .. which is the one which worries me. It was reported either by the first research ship or shortly
after they did their first reports, by another group.
That area is one of the reasons the tsunami idea is so awful, if the methane went that way, it could possibly do a rapid expand, and cause even worse
Thanks for the Data, I will look, and see if I can find more.
On another tac ... is it possible the oil will not stay in the mid ocean gyre?
Could it go on over to Europe, and up to the arctic? It is not plastic, and I think it might be as influenced by prevailing winds as anything else
(perhaps even rotational forces?).
