Study shows 79% of oil from spill could remain

Posted on August 18th, 2010 No Comments

A group of scientists have done a study on the BP oil spill and have found that an estimated 70 percent of oil from the spill could remain in the Gulf of Mexico despite the government’s much lower estimate of how much oil is left.

The scientists believe that nearly three-quarters of the oil spilled is still under the surface of the water. One of the leaders in the investigation, a marine science professor at the University of Georgia, has said that the oil may take years to completely degrade and that the impact from the oil spill cannot yet be understood.

Earlier this month, federal scientists announced that three-quarters of the total amount spilled had already dissolved leaving only a a quarter of the oil left in the water. While both groups of researchers are remaining optimistic that the oil will eventually be gone, the reports show a much different amount of oil left.
