I've got to agree with the other posters who say that is most likely the ROV kicking up dust and muck on the bottom.
The ROVs don't have to really move around, land or take off to kick up the muck. They are constantly using the "fans" to keep a stable float. Any
time a current moves it up or down it will need to adjust with the fans which will kick up muck.
Experiment with your house fans, which are nowhere as powerful as the fans on the ROV.
Its typical of the same thing I've seen over the past months of watching the leak and ROVs and I've watched 100s of hours of footage.
I thought this quote here, in regards to it being muck kicked up from the bottom and not an oil blowout was quite hilarious....

plenty of them.
The title of this thread is CONFIRMED, which it in no way has been. And this dude has the audacity to bash a guy for speculating that it is not an oil
blowout and is easily explained by ROVs kicking up muck, if you've watched enough of the videos to have seen that 27 times, you'd probably be
familiar with how it looks.
So unless ANY ATS member has commandeered a ROV and had a look around the entire floor while being careful not to stir up the bottom with the ROV,
then absolutely nothing has been confirmed.
Encourage ignorace, thats all that happens on these BP threads anyways. Every chicken little thread on here has the majority of people saying "OMG
thats the proof, we're doomed now
, then theres one guy explaining that maybe the sky won't fall, he gets attacked and questioned with "what
proof do you have..." Probably the same proof the chicken little crowd have, with a pinch of common sense and a dash of rational thought.
Seems like everytime something is done "right" with the leak, and it stops someones doomsday scenario, well they just got to make a new one now
don't they. This just has
to be the disaster that kills mankind, and if this happens that stops X scenario from happening well theres always Z
scenario to kill us all, don't sell EOTWAWKI disaster kits just yet!
Encourage ignorance, deny ignorance....does anyone know the difference anymore?
