Turbidity Current Studied

Turbidity Current Studied

The BBC reports on a study of a turbidity current in Monterey Bay, California, using a BED (Benthic Event Detector). These were placed on the sea bed in anticipation of a turbidity current occurring. And one did on the 15th January this year.

Details of how it was done are given but few measurements. Read it on the BBC website HERE.
