100 miles SOUTHEAST of blow-out: Oil appeared from "100 meters from the surface all the way down to 1,200 meters"


What Lies Beneath, National Wildlife Foundation, October 4, 2010:

A research team from Columbia University recently discovered large traces of degraded oil deep in the water column of the Gulf of Mexico.  ...

The research team was lead by Ajit Subramaniam, an Associate Research Professor from the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University. The team traveled by vessel from August 21 through September 16 to a series of stations starting at the wellhead itself then going 100 miles southeast and backtracking 40 miles to the west...

Subramaniam said they found areas where “degraded” oil appeared to be present from as shallow as 100 meters from the surface all the way down to 1,200 meters below the surface.

“We found these in several layers and we often found layers stacked upon one another. A lot of the degraded oil appears to be moving around the Gulf, perhaps in different directions,” said Subramaniam.
