Image : WHOI-Led Study Sharpens Picture of How Much Oil and Gas Flowed in Deepwater Horizon Spill

3D reconstruction of a hydrocarbon jet leaking from the Deepwater Horizon's  broken riser. Each colored dot represents the location of an acoustic Doppler velocity measurement, with the dot color describing the velocity. The black ellipse indicates the size and location of the jet source; blue dashed ellipses indicate the jet flow perimeter. Black dots indicate the position of the ROV-mounted Doppler sonar during the measurement sequence. (Illustration courtesy of Rich Camilli, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
