New oil plume evidence uncovered

Not really a fan of quoting CNN sources but came across this. Video found in the link below.

St. Petersburg, Florida (CNN) -- As if the pictures of birds, fish and animals killed by floating oil in the Gulf of Mexico are not disturbing enough, scientists now say they have found evidence of another danger lurking underwater.

The University of South Florida recently discovered a second oil plume in the northeastern Gulf. The first plume was found by Mississippi universities in early May.

USF has concluded microscopic oil droplets are forming deep water oil plumes. After a weeklong analysis of water samples, USF scientists found more oil in deeper water.


Makes me think that the "DISPERSANTS" that BP used where actually not to clean or help with the OIL cleanup but more to make it look like less oil was coming up to the surface. The article now shows that most of the oil plumes that are below the surface of the water are almost colourless and hard to spot.

How much area exactly has the oil spill covered? If we can see the spill from satellite imagery who knows what the true extent of the spill underwater will show.
If so much evidence is coming from people suggesting oil plumes why do BP still deny it.

BP has not commented on the latest development but in the past denied underwater oil plumes exist. "The oil is on the surface," said BP's Chief Executive Officer Tony Hayward. "There aren't any plumes."
