Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, Gulf of Mexico 2010

Fresh oil collected from the surface Fresh oil collected from the surface.

The first photo is from ~ 7 meters (20 feet) below the surface looking at the surface of the water from below. Note how the oil plume goes below the surface. The second photo was taken between 60 and 80 feet or 20 to 26 meters below the surface. Note the Corexit dispersed oil has not disappeared, but the Corexit has attached itself to the protein molecule of the oil which does not allow the oil to form larger oil droplets.


Sonar mapping Sonar mapping
Sonar mapping High resolution sonar mapping of Corexit treated oils. Solid red line at top of picture represents the surface of the water with Mud at 100 feet indicating the bottom. At 20 ft a specific signature was recorded and a sample was taken. At 80 feet, tar islands were noted floating above the bottom at 90 feet. Fish and marine species can be identified specifically due to either the bladder or lung of the fish or animal and how sonar reflects from a fish or marine mammal. Note the dispersed oil that will not recombine due to Corexit.

2012 Shrimp Saison
Note that blue crab, shrimp and plankton are the beginning of the food chain. Over 40% of all seafood consumed in the USA prior to the BP oil spill came from the Gulf of Mexico. Spills do not only affect the sea life of the area but have a negative long term effect on the economics of the area.

Solvent in breaking down tars Solvent
In the picture above right, note the dark tar balls at the bottom of the jar. This sample was collected from the beach on the left. The bottom right photo shows the solvent and the sample after treatment. Confirmation of the Mapping model was done by diving where applicable or by use of what was affectionately called the BP Bomber.

Fresh oil on the surface Fresh oil on the surface

The first picture on the left is fresh oil from the BP Maconda well. The picture on the right is oil that has been in the sea for a period of a couple of days. The oil on the left (red) has lighter chemicals such as Benzine which is captured by the activated Carbon in the top of the Cheveaux boom.
