Chemical measurements confirm official estimate of Gulf oil spill rate

New NOAA-led analysis shows gases and oil in three chemically different mixtures deep underwater, in the surface slick, in the air

By combining detailed chemical measurements in the deep ocean, in the oil slick, and in the air, NOAA scientists and academic colleagues have independently estimated how fast gases and oil were leaking during the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
