    • Architecture of North Atlantic contourite drifts modified by transient circulation of the Icelandic mantle plume 

      Parnell-Turner, Ross; White, Nicholas J.; McCave, I. Nick; Henstock, Timothy J.; Murton, Bramley J.; Jones, Stephen M. (John Wiley & Sons, 2015-10-15)
      Overflow of Northern Component Water, the precursor of North Atlantic Deep Water, appears to have varied during Neogene times. It has been suggested that this variation is moderated by transient behavior of the Icelandic ...
    • Detection of an unusually large hydrothermal event plume above the slow-spreading Carlsberg Ridge : NW Indian Ocean 

      Murton, Bramley J.; Baker, Edward T.; Sands, Carla M.; German, Christopher R. (American Geophysical Union, 2006-05-31)
      About 90% of Earth's volcanism occurs along the global mid-ocean ridge system. Here, sporadic volcanic and tectonic activity is thought to cause cataclysmic release of hydrothermal fluids, forming event plumes. Each plume ...
    • Hydrothermal vent fields and chemosynthetic biota on the world's deepest seafloor spreading centre 

      Connelly, Douglas P.; Copley, Jonathan T.; Murton, Bramley J.; Stansfield, Kate; Tyler, Paul A.; German, Christopher R.; Van Dover, Cindy L.; Amon, Diva; Furlong, Maaten; Grindlay, Nancy; Hayman, Nicholas W.; Huhnerbach, Veit; Judge, Maria; Le Bas, Tim; McPhail, Stephen; Meier, Alexandra; Nakamura, Ko-ichi; Nye, Verity; Pebody, Miles; Pedersen, Rolf B.; Plouviez, Sophie; Sands, Carla M.; Searle, Roger C.; Stevenson, Peter; Taws, Sarah; Wilcox, Sally (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-01-10)
      The Mid-Cayman spreading centre is an ultraslow-spreading ridge in the Caribbean Sea. Its extreme depth and geographic isolation from other mid-ocean ridges offer insights into the effects of pressure on hydrothermal ...
