Acoustic backscatter observations at 200 kilohertz were made of the buoyant plume from a submarine spring at a depth of 47 meters in Cambridge Fiord, Baffin Island. Vertical velocities of up to 37 centimeters per second are inferred from the ascent rates of discrete scattering structures in the plume.
