An inexpensive and handy technique to study water exchange in the immediate proximity of biological objects inhabiting the sea bottom in marine biological research is considered. The technique is a modification of Muus'  method of gypsum-plaster balls and allows for the evaluation of the biologically relevant parameters of the bottom movement of water, namely total water flux, correlation of vertical and horizontal near-bottom transport of water masses, etc. We present an example of its application in the study of the influence of hydrodynamics on the distribution of Millepora hydroids in Vietnamese reefs.
