The original version of this Article also contained errors in the Materials and Methods section under subheading ‘MIT-gcm model configuration’.
“A was developed to investigate mining pluhigh-resolution, non-hydrostatic ocean modelme dynamics in the region and to detect the location of enhanced mixing patches driven by the interaction of tidal and mean flow with bathymetry.”.
“A high-resolution, non-hydrostatic ocean model was developed to investigate mining plume dynamics in the region and to detect the location of enhanced mixing patches driven by the interaction of tidal and mean flow with bathymetry.”.
The original version of this Article also contained errors in the Results section under subheading ‘Modelling Plume Dynamics - the role of internal waves.’.
“The isolines 1 and 0.1 cm were found at respectively ~5 and ~12 km away from the source and in the direction of dominant high eddy-induced flow (Fig. 5a), and substantially closer (1.5 and 6 km respectively) in period II (Fig. 5b).”
“The isolines 1 and 0.1 cm were found maximum at respectively ~5 and ~12 km away from the source and in the direction of dominant high eddy-induced flow (Fig. 5a), and substantially closer (1.5 and 6 km respectively) in period II (Fig. 5b).”
These errors have now been corrected in the HTML and PDF versions of the Article, and in the accompanying Supplemental Material.
