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.”
