Oil munching bacteria not breaking down giant underwater oil-plume
[link to www.newkerala.com]

Washington, Aug 20 : A new study has confirmed the presence of a gigantic underwater oil plume in the Gulf of Mexico.

The plume has formed as a result of the BP oil spill and chances are that that it will persist for a long time.

Many scientists had predicted that oil-eating bacteria already present in the Gulf area would degrade the oil but the new study shows that the 35-kilometer-long, 200-meter-high pocket of oil at depths of 1,100 meters has stayed where it was for months.

"We don''t have any clear indication as to why it set up at that depth," National Geographic News quoted study leader Richard Camilli as saying.

Re: Oil munching bacteria not breaking down giant underwater oil-plume
It's really interesting to watch the morphing of information from the original article where the scientists were interviewed and quoted...

To the perception management propaganda such as the one you quoted, Acolyte.

Original article, which was posted on GLP much earlier today:

A "mist" of particles undetectable with the human eye - detectable with only mass spectrometer - that is breaking down much slower than surface due to cold water temp at that depth.

This article:

Hi Tex, long time no see.
Yeah MSM should have the same disclaimer as GLP:

Major study charts long-lasting oil plume in Gulf
AP

By SETH BORENSTEIN, AP Science Writer Seth Borenstein, Ap Science Writer – Thu Aug 19, 6:42 pm ET

WASHINGTON – A 22-mile-long invisible mist of oil is meandering far below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico, where it will probably loiter for months or more, scientists reported Thursday in the first conclusive evidence of an underwater plume from the BP spill.

The most worrisome part is the slow pace at which the oil is breaking down in the cold, 40-degree water, making it a long-lasting but unseen threat to vulnerable marine life, experts said.

<SNIP>

And the oil is degrading at one-tenth the pace at which it breaks down at the surface. That means "the plumes could stick around for quite a while," said study co-author Ben Van Mooy of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts, which led the research published online in the journal Science.

Monty Graham, a scientist at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab in Alabama who was not involved in the study, said: "We absolutely should be concerned that this material is drifting around for who knows how long. They say months in the (research) paper, but more likely we'll be able to track this stuff for years."

<SNIP>

The underwater oil was measured close to BP's blown-out well, which is about 40 miles off the Louisiana coast. The plume started three miles from the well and extended more than 20 miles to the southwest. The oil droplets are odorless and too small to be seen by the human eye. If you swam through the plume, you wouldn't notice it.

<SNIP>

The scientists used complex instruments — including a special underwater mass spectrometer — to detect the chemical signature of the oil that spewed from the BP well after it ruptured April 20. The equipment was carried into the deep by submersible devices.

<SNIP>

The oil is at depths of 3,000 to 4,000 feet, far below the environment of the most popular Gulf fish like red snapper, tuna and mackerel. But it is not harmless. These depths are where small fish and crustaceans live. And one of the biggest migrations on Earth involves small fish that go from deep water to more shallow areas, taking nutrients from the ocean depths up to the large fish and mammals.

Those smaller creatures could be harmed by going through the oil, said Larry McKinney, director of Texas A&M University's Gulf of Mexico research center in Corpus Christi.

Some aspects of that region are so little known that "we might lose species that we don't know now exist," said Graham of the Dauphin Island lab.

<SNIP>

For much of the summer, the mere existence of underwater plumes of oil was the subject of a debate that at times pitted outside scientists against federal officials who downplayed the idea of plumes of trapped oil. Now federal officials say as much as 42 million gallons of oil may be lurking below the surface in amounts that are much smaller than the width of a human hair.

While federal officials prefer to describe the lurking oil as "an ephemeral cloud," the Woods Hole scientists use the word "plume" repeatedly.

The study conclusively shows that a plume exists, that it came from the BP well and that it probably never got close to the surface of the Gulf of Mexico, Camilli said. It is probably even larger than 22 miles long, but scientists had to stop measuring because of Hurricane Alex.

Earlier this week a University of South Florida team reported oil in amounts that were toxic to critical plant plankton deep underwater, but the crude was not necessarily in plumes. Those findings have not been reviewed by other scientists or published.

The plume is probably still around, but moving west-southwest of the BP well site at about 4 miles a day, Camilli said.
