Scientists report “NEW plume of oil” with “millions of specks of reddish-brown oil in it”


Scientists Find New Oil Plume In Gulf, CBS 4, October 28, 2010:

Scientists speaking at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show say they continue to see effects of the BP oil spill surfacing in the Gulf of Mexico.

At a conference Thursday, scientists with a group called the International SeaKeepers Society, unveiled a map showing a new plume of oil -- about 6 miles long -- that's been discovered in the Gulf by fishermen.

"They described it as having millions of specks of reddish-brown oil in it," Dr. Mark Luther from the University of South Florida told CBS 4's Carey Codd. ...

"There's likely to be effects for years or even decades because there's so much oil that's still out there," Luther said. "We just don't know where it is."
