Study calls Gulf oil spill worst in history

Posted on September 24th, 2010 No Comments

According to a study completed by two Columbia University researchers, the U.S. government was correct in its estimation that the Gulf oil spill was the “worst marine oil accident ever”.  From April 20th to July 15th almost 185 gallons of oil spilled into the Gulf of Mexico.

The federal government has released very little information on the oil spill so researchers could only use video clips of the leak to analyze and estimate the exact amount spilled.  Using high resolution cameras the researchers were able to track the motion of oil flows and examine them pixel by pixel.

U.S. Geological Survey Director Marcia McNutt called the study “a completely independent and unbiased verification of the government result”.  The study is being published in the journal Science.
