NOAA Puts Oil Spill Data on One Site
14 June 2010 3:20 pm
Nearly 2 months after the 20 April explosion of BP's Deepwater Horizon drilling platform triggered the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the U.S. government has finally provided scientists and the public with an online map featuring much of its data on the disaster. The site layers dozens of data sets over a Google maps rendering of the Gulf of Mexico, showing everything from the spill's projected area to the locations of stranded turtles. The Web site was created by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
