What are plume dynamics?

Gas Release Experiment conducted at the seabed of Sleipner


Deployed elevator on the seafloor above the Utsira CO2 storage formation.
Water depth: 83 m Bubble streams of CO2 and Kr released through perforated Teflon pipes on top of the lander. Current measurements by ADCP.
The local current regime was observed by a hydro-acoustic current meter (ADCP), which has been deployed at the seafloor a few meters away from the lander (~20 m). During all experimental runs it measured the current direction and magnitude in 3-D, which is important for numerical modeling of the advective transport of dissolved CO2 in the water column.
