Identifying Harmful Elements Of Persisting Oil After Deepwater Horizon Explosion

On 20 April 2010, a floating oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico called Deepwater Horizon suddenly exploded, leading to the largest accidental marine oil disaster in the world. Collaborating scientists at EPFL in Switzerland and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in the United States have analyzed the composition of eight oil-soaked sand patties that were collected along the Gulf shores from April until November in 2011. They determined and classified the chemical composition of these oil residues, showing that they contain harmful compounds. By identifying the compounds, it is now easier to assess their effects on wildlife. The results will be published on January 22, 2014 in Environmental Science & Technology.

More massive tar mats from BP oil spill discovered on Louisiana beaches

The 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster was just a month old and BP's crude oil was still gushing from the Gulf floor when state officials began to grasp the true scope of the insult to Louisiana's coast: Beaches, estuaries and wetlands would be under assault for decades.
