Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill - Cumulative Oil Slick Footprint, April 25 - July 16, 2010

Graphic showing the cumulative oil slick footprint for the BP / Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the northeast Gulf of Mexico. Created by overlaying all of the oil slicks mapped by SkyTruth on satellite images taken between April 25 and July 16, 2010.

 

Cumulatively, surface oil slicks and sheen observed on satellite images directly impacted 68,000 square miles of ocean - about as big as Oklahoma.
