    The particles will range widely in size and weight and most will settle out in a plume eventually and be incorporated into ocean bottom sediments. They will then be redistributed with every disturbance. Given that the area of the Kuroshio Current is well known for its volcanism and seismic activity, I would expect that distribution process to continue for millenia.

      Our problem here, apparently, is convincing the oceanographers - who should all know better - of reality. They don't seem very amenable to that, do they? §;o)
