Captain Thano I've seen this natural phenomenon at river's delta after a heavy rain. The river water carries sediment particles (clay, silt, sand and gravel). These particles are charged and remain dispersed in liquids for days. This phenomenon is referred to as colloidal stability and such a suspension is said to be stable. Stable suspensions are often obtained at low salt concentrations as in a river. When river water carrying suspended sediment particles reaches salty water, particle aggregation may be one of the factors responsible for river delta formation. Charged particles are stable in river’s fresh water containing low levels of salt, but they become unstable in sea water containing high levels of salt. In the latter medium, the particles aggregate, the larger aggregates sediment, and thus create the river delta. 6 years ago

Captain Thano So the line in the video is actually the place where a huge river water meets sea water, stable changes to unstable, and particles are let drop to the bottom of the sea. 6 years ago
