Oil Oil Everywhere: Update on Affected Area

by Michael Mason


The image at left helps you appreciate the extent of the area affected by the BP Oil Spill Geyser. If you relocated Deepwater Horizon to Tulsa’s City Hall, the spill would cover an area so broad, that your entire drive to Joplin, Fayetteville, or McAlester would be coated by thick, oozy crude.

Take a look at our previous map for a comparison.

Thanks to Paul Rademacher for creating an interactive Google Earth map that allows you to view the disaster in relation to any given area on the planet.
