BP Oil Spill: Environmental Impact Lingers

BP Oil Spill
The BP oil spill has resulted in long-lasting environmental impact and lingering issues in the region, such as the oily “bathtub ring” left on the sea floor at the site of the incident, which experts have estimated is about the size of Rhode Island.

A recent study conducted by federal scientists assigned to assess the damage caused by the 2010 BP oil spill estimated that more than 10 million gallons of oil was left to congeal on the floor of the Gulf of Mexico in the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizons oil rig catastrophe.

The BP oil spill occurred on Apr. 20, 2010, when the oil rig exploded and spewed more than 170 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico throughout the summer. Scientists are still trying to determine the extent of the environmental impact and lingering issues involved in the incident. Many questions remain as to where all the oil went, what effects it had, and the possible repercussions for the future.
