Vast undersea oil linked to BP disaster; Plumes moving towards Florida via “express route”

Scientists Confirm Underwater Plumes Are From Spill, New York Times, July 23, 2010:

Florida researchers said Friday that they had for the first time conclusively linked vast plumes of microscopic oil droplets drifting in the Gulf of Mexico to the Deepwater Horizon disaster. …

A plume has been found near DeSoto Canyon, an underwater valley south of the Florida Panhandle where ocean currents push nutrient-rich water up onto the continental shelf. … “It’s almost an express route up there,” Dr. Hollander said. “That’s what raises the concerns of the biologists.”
