Researchers say “more VOC’s” from oil may still get released into Gulf’s air supply — 10 new monitors installed “to see if we should worry” (VIDEO)


USA Researchers To Monitor Post-Spill Air Quality, WKRG, September 17, 2010:

There's been no new oil flow to the surface in more than a month, so you might think there's less worry about our air, but researchers say there's still a chance for leftover oil to get into our air supply.

"It's hard to tell, and that's exactly why we're doing this, to see if we should worry or not," says Meteorology Professor. Researchers believe strong storms or other weather events can shake up submerged oil and more VOC's could slip into the air. 10 of these meters will be installed at sites throughout Mobile and Baldwin Counties.

  • What? No new oil flow for a month? I thought the oil volcano was ongoing, although at a lesser degree and force.

    And what about the fractures in the rock, and the other wells. Are they watching well A, B, C... or what? Have the 'laws of physics' been disproven?

    Post spill air quality?
